Smile I worked at Holmewood from 1953 to 1961 when I moved to Bramley Vale Drift ( Reason just married, lived at Glapwell didn't see point of passing one pit to go to another). In 1953 seams worked were Tupton and Three quarters. Faces were 7's 8's in East side 3/4's E1's and E2's in the Tupton. The overman on that side of the pit was Wilf Clements
