Just to add to this, the site of Clapham pit is still extant, and with a few nice remains. One of those places I've been meaning to visit for ages, but never gone thinking it would be another fruitless search. So, nice to be rewarded with something to see Worth a visit for those with an interest.

It is 45 years ago today since the Lofthouse Colliery Disaster. How time flies. I was an underground fitter at Lofthouse at the time and I remember an older miner (I was 26 at the time) saying to me as we waited to go underground "Tha'll niver forget 1st day of Spring" and he is right, I never do.
