Letter: Boulby Mine ‘perfect in my eyes’

editorial image

Many congratulations to the environmental services team at Boulby and particularly Zoe Cooper who took the wonderful photo of Boulby Potash Mine and to have this accepted for the beautiful layout of this mine.

I have always defended this mine when I have heard it described as an eyesore, as I did again only last week.

This thoughtfully laid out site which fits in well with this landscape, that I knew well when I roamed this area with friends in my childhood (many moons ago).

You know I have always liked to think this site must have been designed by a woman, it is so perfect in my eyes.

This mine brought much-needed employment to this area when it was so badly needed.

May it long continue.
