Wildflowers remembrance garden Dinnington photograph

The remembrance garden in Dinnington has recently been upgraded, to make it easier to maintain they put in wild flowers and they look quite beautiful at the moment.  You will also find the colliery winding wheel in the middle of the garden.


All the best

  1. Hi! I had no idea what a “winding wheel” was, but now I know! And I found your photo on: https://images.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=A0LEVizqE3xXDdQAeKUnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTEyZnY3NzBiBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQjIzNDFfMQRzZWMDc2M-?p=Dinnington+Winding+Wheel+In+England&fr=yhs-mozilla-002&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-002 already. Boy, you move fast! And it’s absolute gorgeous!

    We have coal in Iowa and coal shafts still collapsing in our town’s residential districts. One day a 60-foot tree was in someone’s front yard and the next morning there was nothing but a hug hole. The land owners never new there was a coal mine shaft that went under their property (that was 3 months ago).

    I’m so proud of you and so amazed at all you know and do! Thank you so much — I’m learning so much about England from you, and it’s absolutely breath-taking!

    I need to get back to looking for work.

    All the best,



  2. Only one criticism, it’s not a memorial garden, it’s Coronation Park. Made to commemorate the Coronation of George V in 1910. The Cenotaph was placed there in 1921 and was originally separated from the Park by white metal railings but these were removed for the war effort in the 40’s.
