Youngsters from Denby Dale First School got a special glimpse of life down a coal mine today. With students from Bretton Hall College the children, including Andrew Harpin pictured being kitted out by mine guide Ian Thomas, visited the disused Caphouse Colliery, which opens as a museum in June. The 80-strong party gave the staff a trial run at dealing with crowds in the underground section of the museum. 3rd March 1988.
