We took all the little ones out for the day yesterday all the way to the national mining museum.
Fantastic they all loved it first a look around the museum part then the big one.
Down the mine we went after picking up the hard hats and lamps.
Once the door closes on the cage that you go down in it gets damp/musty and very dark.
The take you round the old workings and the new showing how it has been done over at least 100 years 140 meters bellow ground.
After that the little ones stoked the pit ponies that once worked down there then of on the mining train that goes between the two sites.
All in all a fantastic day and well worth a visit ( most of what we did has not been listed it would take to long.
All the best.
