Crofton Parish Council and its residents were recently invited to the unveiling and dedication ceremony for a pit winding wheel on 19 October 2019, which has been installed in Walton Colliery Country Park. Working for Walton (W4W), in collaboration with Friends of Walton Colliery Nature Park arranged this ceremony to commemorate the 1959 Pit Disaster and 1979 Pit Closure, 2019 being therefore a double commemorative year for Walton Pit. The pit winding wheel was kindly donated by Norman Parkinson of the History for Walton Group.
