News 70 Years Ago.
Thursday, October 3, 1935.

Work on the coal mine at Oxford Jct., owned by Fleming and Ross of Truro, has stopped.  The coal face, which at times gave a good quality of coal, ran out last week and the shaft has been closed.

From the Oxford Journal Newspaper, published Wednesday, 28 September 2005.
