Coal Mining - Loan Box

£50 per half term

Discover Barnsley’s mining heritage from protests to pit ponies with our interactive 'talking’ loan box. 

Let our objects speak for themselves as they tell you about the history of the Borough and its communities. Lesson plans and suggested activities are provided alongside the box.

Pupils will make a local history study

It’s a great resource and something really different. It gives you lots of background information and explains the different vocabulary really well. We are currently learning about the history of our local area and resources are often hard to find. This is great!
