Down, down, deeper and down!

Wow what a brilliant day!!! We have been on our visit today to the National Mining Museum and had an amazing time: I think it’s one of the best trips I’ve been on for ages 🙂

Why don’t you tell everyone what you thought about the day: what was your favourite part? Did you find anything surprising?

I really enjoyed the workshop with Sally; she was so informative telling us all about life working down the pit during Victorian times. Probably the most surprising fact for me was when she said that only the ‘getter’ would get paid for his work! How unfair was that?!
