THIS is the miners memorial sculpture which has gone on display in Stainforth’s St Mary’s Church.

A church service was held to unveil the artwork by Byron Howard (pictured) which makes particular reference to the 1939 cage crash disaster at Hatfield Main Colliery in 1939 when one man died and nearly 70 were injured.
