Reminiscences of life in a pit community can be heard at Creswell Crags until Sunday, March 1.

The oral history recordings cover the Creswell pit disaster of 1950, the role of the unions and even superstition of ghosts in the pit.

The recordings were collected as part of a Limestones Journey project to celebrate the area’s heritage.

Dennis Skinner (above), MP for Bolsover, opened the exhibition in November.

Admission to the Mining Memories exhibition is free.
