Remember Cadley Hill colliery? Near Swadlingcote, just out of Burton on the road to Nuneaton? It was one of the last (if not the last) outposts of regular industrial steam in the UK. Steam finished here in the early 1980s, and the colliery closed on 1988. Today, little remains to indicate Cadley Hill’s industrial past.
