Armthorpe was effected by then prime minister Margaret Thatcher's policy of coal mine closure, eventually losing its 76-year-old Markham Main Colliery in 1996. One of the few visible reminders of the village's mining history is a huge wheel from the pit that stands as a memorial along the main road.
