Meet a Miner
Our mine guides have all worked in the industry and what they don’t know about mining isn’t worth knowing.
The miners can talk to you about the experiences they had underground and how it was more than a job and how mining culture and community contributed to the people they are.
They can tell you about the techniques and equipment used to build what was once the second biggest industry in the UK.
They can tell you about the men women and children who worked for hundreds of years before them and how their experiences contribute to who you are today from working conditions to the phrases you use.
Our mine guides are happy to have a chat as you meet them across the site but the best way to hear their stories is during an Underground Tour.
