NEWS (March 2009): Pits and Holes

Pits and Holes

The next meeting of the Society takes place on Thursday 12th March 2009 at 7:30 pm in St. Andrew’s Church, Bilston Street, Sedgley.

The speaker is Graham Worton, keeper of geology and manger at Dudley Museum and Art Gallery, and nationally recognised expert on the Wren’s Nest limestone workings. His illustrated presentation focuses on pits and quarries in Sedgley, Coseley & the Gornals as he takes a fresh look at the local mineral wealth and its exploitation.

This is an excellent evening to hear stories about mines, miners and the dangers they faced in harsh, unimaginable conditions.

As usual visitors are invited to come along. Individual talks cost £1.
