Day 270 – Wed 31 May – Dad and I took Noah and Ellie to Big Pit up in Blaenavon, it ceased working as a Mine in 1980 and has been a museum since 1983. You go 90ft underground with an ex miner who takes you round. I love it and never tire of going round. The kids enjoyed it and weren’t as scared as I thought they’d be. There are great moments like when you turn off the lights and you can’t see your finger infront of your nose. how men did it for year after year is remarkable. What is also remarkable is that it is free!!
