Fifty years ago, 17 coal miners lost their lives at the Box Flat Colliery, Ipswich.

Our Ipswich and Rosewood Coalminers’ Memorial in @limestone_park, commissioned in 2016, is a place of serenity and symbolism that pays tribute to these miners and their families and the 186 lives lost throughout the region’s mining history.

Today, our thoughts are with the families and colleagues of the lost Box Flat miners.
