Mudlarking near an old coal mine, Barnsley Main history

Join us as we go mudlarking in the river near Barnsley Main, an old coal mine in Yorkshire. Although now disused, it is being repaired and restored. It was interesting to watch the men working on the head gear.

We went for a mudlark in the river Dearne, very close to the old mine, hoping to find some artefacts from the old mine. Did we discover any?

It is very useful being married to an ex-miner, as Phil has plenty of knowledge of the mining process, and is usually able to spot any relevant items.

I hope you enjoy the video :)
