The article reports on the forthcoming sale of a 1800 acres of mainly pasture in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and County Durham belonging to UK Coal Mining, which was formed after the Coal Board was privatised in 1994. The land will be divided in 30 lots over two days. The topsoil was saved as the bands of coal were removed and then replaced once they had been mined out.
