Date:June 1964

Description:Norton Colliery is in the centre foreground just beyond the houses. The spoil tip on the horizon belongs to Sneyd Colliery and the flatter, lower ground in between is the valley of the Ford Green Brook. Coal wagons on the Biddulph Valley branch line are just visible behind the colliery. The housing in the distance is in Smallthorne.
The view is very different today. Sneyd Colliery spoil tip has been landscaped (Sneyd Hill Park) and Norton Colliery has been redeveloped as mixed housing (off Bellerton Lane), retail and open space.
