See a mining community’s proudest possession with our display of colourful mining banners

March your way to the top of our ‘ramp of reform’, the last resting place of a mining community’s proudest possession – the pit banner.

March your way to the top of our ‘ramp of reform’, the last resting place of a mining community’s proudest possession – the pit banner.

Imagine how those miners felt striding together, their banner waving in the wind as they proudly carried it aloft. The banner was a powerful symbol of their unity and strength, binding them together as they pursued workers’ rights and holding them fast in times of grief and strife.

 

This experience is included at no additional cost as part of your Museums Northumberland Annual Membership where children can visit for free.

Take full advantage of your Annual Membership and experience Coal Forest this winter at Woodhorn Museum.
