MARVELLOUS memories of a former colliery were projected onto buildings for all to watch and enjoy.

Giant images were beamed onto Staveley Hall and Bolsover Castle, recounting the much-remembered Markham Colliery in its glory days.

Ian Haddock, assistant financial officer of Staveley Town Council, said despite the cold weather more than 100 visitors turned up.

“We are happy with how everything turned out.”

He added: “We would seriously consider doing it again.”
