‘Bob Hole’

"Bob Hole"

North Skelton Mine; the last pay packets, being paid at the accounts office window called the ”bob hole”, on the 17th January 1964. Can any one  help with identification of the Miners?

Leo Howard tells us: ”The first man in the queue wearing beret. His name was Willi Wnek. He was Polish and was the fitter.”

    My father, Henryk Doktor, also Polish, worked at the Lumpsey pit until the 1950s. I would very much like to find out more about his time there. Any references to mining records etc. would be most gratefully received.

    Of little consequnce, a Bob Hole was the little door in the side of a hen house that was raised each morning to let the hens out and closed at night when they’d all gone back in and this would keep out foxes.
