Experiences of Bolsover Pit
« on: Sunday 10 January 16 00:49 GMT (UK) »
Hi again,
Can anyone point me to where I may get some insight as to what conditions would have been like down the Bolsover pit? I think my grandchildren need to have some idea of what it was like!
Cheers
Steve

Take the grandchildren on a tour of any underground mine. I see there are tours of gold mines etc in Australia! My kids were fascinated when we went down a slate mine when they were small!
