The Piccadilly Mining Heritage Group was formed in October 2006 with a committee of eight members, 2 of which are ex miners of Kingsbury & Dexter Collieries. The group was formed to highlight the village of Piccadilly and Kingsbury Colliery. The group was successful in obtaining funding from The Heritage Lottery to write a book on the history of Piccadilly and the connection with Kingsbury Collieries.
Our book 'Piccadilly A Village Built on Coal' has been released. The price is £10.99 plus postage and package. The book has 236 pages of text, maps and photographs charting the history of Piccadilly as a mining community from the opening of Kingsbury Colliery through to its closure and right up until the present day.
