Barnsley miner Glenn Washington recounted the following story, con cerning an experience which a colleague had in the early 1980ís. This man was a maintenance engineer at South Kirby Colliery, and was performing the routine duty of walking along the belt line, ensuring that it was in working order as it transported coal. He noticed a figure in the distance, removing spillage with a shovel and throwing it back on to the belt. The engineer did not recognise the man, although they exchanged names and stopped for a chat before he continued along the belt. It was over an hour later when a deputy was made aware that another miner was working in the area. Convinced that nobody should have been there, he contacted control, giving the name which the stranger had given to the maintenance engineer - only to receive the reply that a man of this name had died twenty years previously! Needless to say, when they rushed back to the belt, there was nobody in sight.
