New exhibition is a mine of information

This extensive exhibition includes a reconstruction of a coal mine, recreated scenes of home and working life, plus a wealth of objects and information which has been created as a result of a two year project to involve the community in researching the local mining heritage of South Lanarkshire, backed by Heritage Lottery funding.

The exhibition looks at all aspects of life in mining communities from the harsh working conditions and major tragedies like the Blantyre Pit Disaster, to the social side of being part of a mining village, gala days and brass bands. The exhibition also features films and stories from the volunteers who took part in the Pits, Ponies, People and Stories project giving their memories of working in the mines or being part of a mining family.

Specially commissioned banners, produced by local sewing groups, displayed on the walls of the exhibition galleries, acknowledge the part that mining banners played in the identity of collieries and the communities they represented.

The exhibition runs at Low Parks Museum until December 2016 and throughout its showing a number of events and activities linked to the exhibition are planned, including a gala day at the museum Saturday 14th May.

Please call Low Parks Museum 01698 452382 for further information.
