Shaun Richardson – Landscape with Horses: Coal Mining at Tan Hill and Kings Pit Collieries.
With a working life of more than 700 years the collieries have been the subject of previously unpublished documentary research by the late Les Tyson and new detailed measured earthwork survey carried out by Ed Dennison Archaeological Services Ltd. Shaun will draw on both of these to give an outline history of the pits, focusing particularly on the structures associated with raising the coal by horse power.

Friends of the Museum £4/non-members £5
Advance booking advisable.
