The New Hartley mine disaster. Memorial pathway.

This pathway is a lasting memorial of that fateful day in January 1862. New Hartley Community Association and BVAL commissioned artists Russ Coleman and Rob Walton to create a piece of public landscape architecture in the form of a rejuvenated pathway to re-image the memorial garden. This pathway commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Hartley Pit disaster.

In memory of the 204 men and boys who perished.
