|Content Description||It 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.
