Rugeley Miners Memorial


Commissioned by: Cannock Chase Council and Lea Hall and Brereton Miners Memorial Society.


Materials: Concrete


Height: 2.6 Metres


Location: Rugeley, Staffordshire

 

A group of former coliery workers from the Rugeley area formed the Lea Hall and Brereton Memorial Society with the intention of curating a mining memorial  to be situated in Rugeley. After succesfully securing Section 106 funding from Cannock Chase Council, I was commissioned to create four statues of miners. The Brereton Miner depicts a 1930s miner and faces towards Brereton. The Rescue Miner faces towards the Rescue station at Hednesford., The Lea Hall Miner is a miner from the 1950s and faces towards the site of the Lea Hall pit. The last figure is the Deputy and looks over the town. The memorial was unveiled in 2015.
