We are in urgent need of two volunteers to help us deliver the successful Hope Pit Explore

• Do you have practical experience of coal mining?

• Do you have the ability to communicate your knowledge in an easy way with visitors, both young and old?

• Are you available to donate time on Sundays?

Why not volunteer to help deliver the Hope Pit Explore!

As a member of a team of three you will take small groups of visitors around Hope, our restored Victorian Pit. As you deliver this interactive script, you will demonstrate the range of skilled work demanded of surface miners who worked in distinct colliery buildings. This will culminate in walking through the historic mineral line located under the A629 but which is now presented as a modern heading.

For more information contact the Volunteer co-ordinator on 01924 848806 or email sallyann.burley@ or complete and send a downloadable application.
