Coalmine

The mining heritage of this area is a fundamental component of its social and industrial history.

Bailiffgate Museum was determined to ensure that every child visiting the museum had the opportunity to experience a taste of what it was like to earn a living underground. It is important for all visitors to remember what an important part  of the rise of industrial might throughout the UK was fed by its coal mines, and the miners who risked their lives in the process.
