The Royal School of Mines was established in 1851,[4] as the Government School of Mines and Science Applied to the Arts. The School developed from the Museum of Economic Geology, a collection of minerals, maps and mining equipment made by Sir Henry De la Beche, and opened in 1841. The museum also provided some student places for the study of mineralogy and metallurgy. Sir Henry was the director of the Geological Survey of Great Britain, and when the collections outgrew the premises the museum and the survey were placed on an official footing, with government assistance.
The Museum of Practical Geology and the Government School of Mines and Science Applied to the Arts opened in a purpose-designed building in Jermyn Street in 1851. The officers of the Geological Survey became the lecturers and professors of the School of Mines. The Royal College of Chemistry was merged into it in 1853. The name was changed in 1863 to the Royal School of Mines, and was moved to South Kensington in 1872. In 1907, the school was incorporated into Imperial College of Science and Technology, but retained its own identity as a "constituent college".
In 2001 it was announced Imperial was to transition from a constituent college structure to a faculty structure, a move that was completed in 2003.[5][2] The last Dean of the Royal School of Mines was Professor John Monhemius before the position was abolished. The Royal School of Mines has since come to refer to both the building in which former school was housed, as are its departments still today, and the student body representing students within those departments.[6]

Some pics of my Late Fathers items which i helped him find over the years, couple of items i purchased after his death in 2018. My Father was born in Whitehaven and at 16 went to Solway to do his underground training. At 18 he underwent more training and became a face worker down Haig Pit. He left a few years later after a friend was killed and joined the Army. My Family has a long history associated with the coal mines, stretching back several generations in Cumbria and the North East.
Here’s a poem about the closing of Brodsworth Pit in Doncaster , it’s called ‘Gone’ Gone - the darkness and the grime , the heat the dirt and the slime. Gone - the laughter, the mates , and the hot canteen , the showers the lockers and the scrubbing clean. Gone - the dust the bile and the smell that makes you ill, the face the gate and the roof that can kill. Gone - the Union , the strike and the rage , the defeat the humiliation, the wage. Gone - the deputy the Over-man and the Boss , the Union man who was always at a loss. Gone - the certainty ,the dignity and the grit , the friendship, the community, The Pit . Thanks for reading .
