ROWAN - Y5
Trip to The Big Pit
My favourite part was descending down the deep, dark coal mine (90 metres down). We laid our eyes on incredible things. There was a machine that rang if you put a piece of metal on it. Underground we inspected all of the lovely stables for the pit ponies.
My favourite part of the trip was 'King Coal' where it showed you how they made tunnels with TNT. It was like a walk around a movie in a hill (it was built through a hill). They also showed you the tools they used down the mine. They used picks and shovels to mine down the mine.
