Mr Phillips began work at the CWS hosiery factory, where Dave's father operated one of the huge machines they can identify used through dated takeover by The Hosiery Mills Company.

This album does however, feature two other interests. A small collection of New Hucknall Colliery memorabilia shows a wagon plate and signboard. The additional inspiration of a 1950s photo of a Bedford two ton tipper truck that made local deliveries in two tone blue livery, is how Dave came to choose the New Hucknall name for his own small freight haulage business, all being based upon having fond memories of watching those pit yard trains.

The locally known New Bridge offered good vantage point watching coal wagons among New Hucknall Colliery sidings, while many others will fondly recall speeding locomotives along a Great Central railway crossing the above Fulwood Four Arches Bridge

A 1977 Free Press column written by former councillor David Ayres gave a romantic look back to when a New Bridge offered South Normanton miners a safe foot path to the New Hucknall Colliery. In light of proposals for laying a High Speed line, Dave Phillips claims to have written an updated history, adding his own fond memories.
