My Sunday Photo


We recently had a chance to learn about our wonderful and interesting Welsh mining history at Big Pit National Coal Museum.

It’s an amazing place, where you get to dress up like a miner or, (as our miner-guide called our group), ‘Mini Miners!’ and then go underground and explore the coal mines.

It’s a really brilliant place to learn about our history, and entry with the underground tour is completely free.

    That sounds amazing. I got to tour a silver mine when I was in the Czech Republic. Lots of fun.

      That sounds like fun, I was amazed how interesting my daughter found it. The guides who were ex miners really made the tour interesting.
