1986 BESTWOOD-EMPLOYMENT

 Although the pit in our village is now
 closed,many of the villagers are      
 employed at neighbouring pits, or at  
 South Nottinghamshire Area Workshops, 
 which are in our village.             
 We believe that the offices for the   
 South Nottinghamshire Area of the     
 National Coal Board,which are also in 
 our village are to be moved to another
 place

In 2011 the BBC published the survey online and for six months invited updates to the photographs and text to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

Shortly afterwards the website was added to The National Archives’ UK Government Web Archive.
