VOLUNTEER SUMMER DAY OUTVolunteers making the most of the sunshine




Volunteers for the British Steel Archive Project were invited to the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum for a tour on 6th August 2009.  The day out was organised by the Community Engagement team to recognise and thank the volunteers for their valuable contributions to the project.  It also gave volunteers the chance to meet other volunteers and share their experiences in an informal environment.



In the museum

We were given a tour of the museum and mine by friendly, informative and engaging volunteers.  The Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum is run almost entirely by a group of volunteeers. 





Down the North Drift


The tour included a walk down the North Drift to the mine and an underground experience where we learnt about the process of mining iron ore.

Underground, after the explosion













At the end of the day, our volunteers could relax and reflect on the tour with a cuppa and biscuit.  Thanks to those who attended and to those that sent their apologies.  




We are again hoping to have a knees up at Christmas for our volunteers... details to follow!!!
