This picture shows the large village of Chopwell in 1934.

On the left of the picture is one of the shafts of the colliery, known as Chopwell number 1 pit. Near the centre of the picture is the pit reservoir.

At the top right of the picture is St John's Anglican church. The Catholic and Methodist churches are close to the houses. The large building at the bottom left hand corner of the picture was a cinema. There was also a working men's club and a Drill Hall.

In 1934 some of the houses in Chopwell had their own enclosed back yards, with outside toilets in the yard, but most of the terraces on this picture had a line of privies in the muddy back lanes between the terraces.
