Carringtons Coppice was the largest site that the company worked and was the deepest opencast site in Britain. Work started in 1947 and by 1949 the seam was worked out after 523, 623 tons of coal had been extracted from the site. By August 1950 the land was reinstated for agricultural use. this photograph was published in October 1949 in the Laing monthly newsletter Team Spirit
