R Colin Snow coal merchants wagon, Barnburgh Colliery, South Yorkshire, 1961. Snow's were one of the many coal merchants operating in the South Yorkshire area, selling locally mined coal. This Bedford TK is parked on the weighbridge of Barnburgh Colliery. When the pit was closed in the 1980s, the site was cleared to make way for the ill fated Earth Centre, the lottery funded ecological centre which swallowed £115 million of funding only to close a year or so after its opening. Snow's still operate as a coal merchant although now with imported coal.
