After the Coal Dust


Currently running until Sunday, 29 April 2018

After the Coal Dust is a series of photographs taken by John, Bridget and Freya Gill of Castleford. The photographs and the website ( is a nonprofit project designed to show life in the local area now that the coal mines have closed. Although many of these images are taken in the local ‘coal towns’ they are equally relevant to many areas of a post-industrial Britain as other traditional industries such as steel and textiles have seen a similar decline. The idea is not one of nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ but a dispassionate look at what comes after the closure of an area’s main industry and focal point.
