Shut Your Coal Hole warmly invites you to join us in beautiful rural County Durham for a few days of skill sharing and workshops about outdoor life and resistance techniques to protect this area from a new opencast coal mine. From mass catering to foraging wild foods, from land defence to climbing trees and everything between; come and learn new skills, meet new people including locals residents and share your experiences with others.

The problem

Banks Group thinks that it is going to start a new opencast coal mine at Bradley this spring. If it happens it would be the first new coal mine in the UK since the government started talking about phasing-out coal We’ve almost run out of options to stop this mine other than direct action.

Banks Group has until the 3rd June this year to start mining at Bradley and then 27 months to extract 550,000 tonnes of coal. For more info on the history of this site see this post.
