Heritage Explorer Volunteer

Hope Pit Explore volunteers

Caphouse Colliery buildings

Hope Pit buildings

  • Do you have a love of history and heritage or practical experience of coal mining/coal mining communities that you would like to pass on?

  • Are you able to communicate your knowledge in an easy way with visitors, both young and old?

  • Would you like to be a member of a team of like-minded enthusiasts?

Heritage Explorers will help visitors appreciate the industrial heritage of the colliery surface. With support, they will devise ways of bringing these interesting buildings and spaces to life so that they can be enjoyed as an interactive experience by a range of visitors. This is a role that involves close team work. Experience of mining and mining practices would be helpful but are not essential
