Extent27 items
Content DescriptionIt would appear that the Railway Company attempted to compulsory purchase the pillar of coal, but did not have the statutory powers to do so. It appears that a Deed of Indemnity was drawn up, whereby the Railway Company agreed to pay the Colliery Company compensation coal royalties lost as a result of leaving the coal unworked. The Colliery Cmpany had the right to work the coal under a lease from Lord Middleton dated 15 Dec. 1900.

Notably includes the following documents:

Mi 3 E 253/1: Draft deed of indemnity in respect of leaving coal unworked beneath an area measuring 2 acres 1 rood and 1 perch of land at Radford, dated 30 Dec. 1904. Includes plan of the area in question.
