Pictures of Blyth
The closure of Bates Colliery in 1986 ended the long tradition of coal-mining in the borough with it a strengthening of the council’s Economic Development strategies in a resolve to bring new employment to the town. The closure of the colliery also brought with it the demise of the Cowpen and Crofton Miners’ Welfare on Renwick Road in the Town completed in 1925 which had been the social centre for the mining community and which had been paid for by subscriptions deducted from the wages of the mining fraternity. However, the Council, seeing the need to bring several of its departments together, bought the building and extended it to suit the needs of a modern day Civic Centre
