    I learnt that the miners used to take pit ponies down the mines. I also learnt that you can carve things out of ‘parrot coal’, so-called because of the chattering sound it makes when it is burnt.

    I enjoyed it, despite banging my head on a steel gurder and a low ceiling,it did bring a lot of pain but I was wearing a hardhat.
    it would have hurt more if I didn’t wear the hardhat.

    I learnt that they used men children and women in the mines but then an accident occurred and now they only use men and horses.

    I really enjoyed going down into the mine and doing lots of fun activities inside there.

    I learnt that the coal miners had to suck coal to prevent their bodies from getting a bad disease. Also I learnt a lot about the mine itself.
