Lamp Unlockers

Posted on

Did you know that in order to go underground, lamps had to be locked? Some lamps were then unlocked using a strong magnet.

If you would like to discover more about miners' lamps and their history, book online to visit our brand new exhibition, A Light in the Darkness, on our Overground Tour.
