Old Maps of Coalville

Historic Maps of Coalville and the local area.

I saw an interesting video on u tube recently called "coalville goes smokeless 1963 " .I knew one of the commenters on there Harold Lindley.

The Miner's Welfare (as it was known locally) gave a home to a wide variety of local activities. As a young teenager I attended weekly ballroom dancing classes on a Saturday morning,and an annual family pilgrimage to the Coalville Amateur Operatic Society musical was much enjoyed. The town lost a much loved and valuable institution when it burned down. I believe it was arson.
