Description:The miner's strike of the 1980's began to crumble in November 1984, eight months after it started. Many miners returned to work leaving a few hardcore strikers on the picket lines. Hem Heath Colliery in Trentham saw some of the largest picket lines and had some of the most steadfast strikers and many did not return to work until March 1985.
