About this image
The Ramcroft colliery company was formed under the guidance of Charles Paxton Markham and he exploited the Top Hard seam in shafts of 152 yards deep as a direct result of the war effort. It was proposed in 1914 to further exploit the coal reserves of the Palterton and Heath areas of the Sutton estates. The Colliery has since been demolished.
