Our Visit to Woodhorn Colliery Museum

On Thursday 28th March we went to Woodhorn Colliery Museum. We had a great day finding out about what life would have been like for a miner. This links with our topic about the local area and the Rising Sun! We went back in time and experienced what it would have been like for a 13 year old boy on his first day down the Pit and also were lucky enough to be able to have a good look around the machinery and old buildings which still exist from the colliery. We then found out about life as a miners wife and all the jobs she had to do. Washing by hand was hard and took a long time!!
