The colliery was the centre of national media and public attention on 18 August 1993 when a roof collapsed in the colliery, killing 31-year-old under-manager David Shelton and miners Bill McCulloch (aged 26) and Peter Alcock (aged 50). David Shelton was posthumously awarded the George Medal for bravery on 11 October 1995 for aiding the rescue of other miners; survivor Ray Thompson also received the George Medal. A memorial to the dead miners was also erected outside the colliery. The village is known locally as being two areas, the 'old' and 'new'. With the 'old' being mainly private houses whereas the 'new' being mainly council housing. The village has two pubs (The Copper Beech, Stanton Arms) and a Miners Welfare Club. The village used to have a Village Hall with squash and sauna facilities with some gym equipment. However, the district council of Newark decided to close these due mainly to the low usage of both the squash and sauna facilities. The Village Hall's main part is still in use for coffee mornings, and other community gatherings including a bowls event for local people. On the Kirklington side of the village is a nursing home for disabled patients called Wycar Leys.
