  1. Wonderful memorys of courting a miners daughter,walking up from Averock back through the mine, which even then in the dark was creepy
    Not so romantic seeing the terrible results of silicosis to her father.Wondering who let my tyres down when i went back to my motorbike!!!Seeing how tough miners work was.Standing opposite the old explosive store now,hearing nothing, you could be on the moon.This is a place I shall come many more times, it is always showing me a new side.You are doing a great job balancing,history with a need to be commercial.
