Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum – Waddle Fan Pit Clearence

Following Simon Chapmans talk at the museum a couple of weeks ago, we volunteered our services to do some maintenance jobs at the museum. The main one being the clearing of the Waddle Fan pit which was becoming overgrown with moss and ferns.

Three group members descended ladders into the pit whilst the rest hauled out the rubbish in buckets.

A very enjoyable day was had by all and we were also fortunate enough to get a look at some of the areas beyond the normal museum tour, we even managed to recruit a new group member.
