Pop on a hard hat, a lamp and go an adventure 140 m underground into England’s last deep coalmine.
Chat to charismatic former-miners as they tell the tales of their mining careers and the men, women, children, animals and equipment that worked the coal mines for centuries before them. Hear how mining lingo, hardships and dangers shape how we live our lives today...
