The Colliery Cat
Most mines would have had a cat that lived in the underground stables to help keep the mouse population under control! The Museum has two cats who hang out at the stables!
Find out more about the cats on the Museum website: https://www.ncm.org.uk/learning/learning-resources/mining-factsheets.
