British Coal considered Tower to be surplus to requirements, because of market constraints, and the mine was closed shortly before privatisation.

It reopened in 1995, when it was bought out by the management and men who worked the colliery prior to nationalisation.

For more information on Tower you can visit our Mining 2000 page dedicated to Tower Colliery.

Alternatively, a link to Tower Colliery's own website is included on our Links Page.
