Hi, my name is Nick Thomas and I am the assistant curator here at Geevor. I am lucky enough to be the person caring for the various collections held here; be it the mineral collection to the huge pieces of machinery littering the site. I also look after the extensive archive of mine records.
Both my father and uncle worked at Geevor while it was working mine and it’s great to be able to read all the old records about them and to listen to their tales. I consider it a great privilege to work here and better still I really enjoy my job!
The photo shows me climbing the ladders to get out of Wethered shaft. A slightly frightening experience as I was not at all sure whether the platforms the ladders rest on were rotten or not.
