Stainforth 2001
 

The Original Stainforth Web Site
The Stainforth 2001 site was launched on New Year's Day 2001 to mark the dawning of the new Millennium. This site is packed with pages about the history of Stainforth, the people of Stainforth, and the issues affecting Stainforth, as well as hundreds of photographs.

Take a look at the Stainforth 2001 Guest book to find comments left by Stainforthians from all around the world. The original guestbook is 23 pages long with almost 500 entries.
A new guestbook was added on January 1st 2007!

Maybe you were!
This is a new addition to Stainforthonline and is another project that I hope to continue to work on for some time. It is an extension to the Stainforth 2001 site's "People" section and concentrates on Stainforth people going about their daily lives as recorded by photographers over the years.
All of the photographs in this project have been donated by local folk and depict local people at work, at school and at play. Take a look and see if there's anyone you know!

The School Days & Sports section contains photographs of football teams, groups of pupils and staff from Stainforth's schools
The Stainforth at Work section contains photographs of Stainforth Doctors in the 1960 and workmen at Hatfield Colliery.
The Fun Days and Socialising section has photographs from long gone Gala Days and some of Stainforths pubs and clubs.
The Hatfield Main Club section contains some of Josh Fleck's collection of photographs, taken at the Pit Club over a twenty year time span.

Please contact me if you or someone you know would like to donate a copy of a photograph for this project.

 
The Stainforth Voice Archive.
This is a relatively new addition to the Stainforth web sites, but it is a project that I hope to continue to work on for many years to come. It is an extension to the Stainforth 2001 site, which looks at Stainforth's history, but with the added bonus that you can listen to people telling their own stories about subjects which are of interest to local historians and family history researchers.
Please contact me if you or someone you know would like to participate in this project.
Miners Advice
 
Help & Advice, for miners, ex-miners, their widows and their descendants
The Miners Advice site contains mining related history, news and events, as well as practical advice for miners, ex-miners and their families. Mining 2000 looks at the state of the coal industry at the turn of the century.
Made in collaboration by Dave Douglass & A Covell, with contributions from many very talented people.
 
The sinking of Hatfield Main Colliery in 1916 brought great changes to Stainforth and an influx of people from all over the country who were looking for work and a new home. These pages on the original Stainforth 2001 site cover the history of Hatfield Colliery and news of current developments.
The latest addition to these pages are details of Powerfuel's plans to build and opertate a 900MW electricity generating plant on the site.
 
Think you know all about Stainforth? Then take the 30 question Stainforth area quiz and test your local knowledge. Starting with really easy questions from the Stainforth 2001 site, and getting much more difficult with questions from the Local Historian's Snippets, this quiz will have you straining your brain for at least ten minutes. ;-)
 
The Stainforth Directory
A directory of local interest web sites..
Here you'll also find a collection of local businesses who have their own web sites, as well the pages of all those who Webvertise on Stainforthonline or just have links with Stainforth.
 
Are you interested in local history? Then why not join The Stainforth & District Local History Society? Meetings are held every month and all are welcome.
 
Based in The Stainforth Family Centre on Thorne Road, the SDP are doing some really good work with the youngsters of Stainforth. They now have a website and have made a DVD about the Kingsway estate.
The Pits    
 
The Pits - A collection of mining photographs
This site was developed during the making of The Miners Advice site and contains photographs of Hatfield Main and many other collieries.
Includes "The Last Days of Blenkinsopp", a collection of photographs taken by miners as their drift mine was taken out of production and eventually sealed.
