MUSICAL DIRECTOR:-   GEOF BENSON

(The Band was formally known as Pleasley Colliery Silver Prize Band)

  The general consensus is that the band began life around 1883 ten years or so after the first mine shafts were sunk in 1871 – 73, the first coal being hewn in 1875. At that time Stanton Ironworks Company owned both Pleasley and Teversal Collieries. Pleasley Colliery being the second oldest pit in the north Derbyshire coalfield.
