 Pit Events 

Welcome back to the Pleasley Colliery web site

Well -- how time flies  As I said almost 12 months ago, just as with the major conservation works which had to be done at the Pit itself a few years ago, the website  also needed  major re-engineering  in order to ensure its continued operation. The majority of this  involved the back-office infrastructure where obsolete computer hardware and operating systems all had to be replaced  before the software could be upgraded to the latest version.

In addition to the website, all the information concerning the Pit -  technical, historical and photographic - that has been built up since research work began in 2005 also has to be  safely migrated from the old systems on to the new and this is a very big job indeed.

Unfortunately, the resources necessary to undertake the migration of the data have proved to be greater than originally anticipated and  considerable delay has occurred in acquiring them. These have finally been obtained and the painstaking process of consolidation and preservation has now begun whilst major progress on the outstanding backlog of domestic projects which, of necessity have had to take top priority, has now freed up a window of opportunity to move the website work forward.

Current information regarding the Pit will  continue to be available  on  the Pleasley Pit  Trust website  www.pleasleypittrust.org.uk
