Mining Memories at Creswell Crags
Creswell Crags, Crags Road, Welbeck, Worksop, S80 3LH: until 1st March 2015
Creswell Crags is hosting a temporary exhibition that uses oral history recordings to bring to life memories of the local
mining industry and its associated way of life. The subjects covered include different roles within the industry, the
Creswell Pit Disaster of 1950, the role of the unions, and even superstition of ghosts in the pit.
Creswell Crags is also asking people with memories of the local mining industry to get in touch with the centre and to be
recorded as part of the project. Training is available as well for any volunteers who would like to learn how to use the
recording equipment and create the oral history recordings. Entry to the exhibition is free. To contact the centre,
