That`s right Dougie...We were surrounded by pits of course. The gate itself has a rose ,a shamrock,a daffodil, and a thistle I think. this was in recognition of themany nationalities who came here to work in the mines. My Dad workrd at No.9 pit at the time of the explosion and my grandad worked at Mains pit.
There is also a profile of the Victoria Cross in honour of Billy Keneally V.C. who is also going to have a plaque put up somewhere....paid for by the British Legion....Given the part my own dad played in the great war this upsets me somewhat but maybe I can sneak one in during the night.There is no way I`m going to beg `them` for permission..
