Hopewell Colliery 2017

Hopewell Colliery wanted a mural down the corridor to the toilets, it's long, high and narrow so almost impossible to photograph so you'll just have to visit to get a good look.

It's a celebration of coal freeminers through the ages - 1000 years or more, the Romans dug out a bit of coal for their steam baths.

Mostly it's been a family affair including women and children.

But to find out more you need to go and visit. You can go on underground guided tours with freemining Verderer Rich Daniels. The tours are very special for being able to see a coal face, something you don't even see at the Big Pit.
