Website update: Holiday Pictures – October, 2007 – Beamish Colliery Village

Posted by HelenEdith on August 31, 2008

The next part of the Beamish site that we explored during our visit last year was the Colliery Village.

I particularly enjoyed looking around the school, set up with old-style desks just like I remember from my early years of primary school before we had a new school and inkwells went out and biros came in! I also enjoyed the row of miner’s cottages very much. They came complete with people acting out the daily life of the early 1900s.

There were also mine buildings to view, although we didn’t explore those in great detail and didn’t don hard hats and actually go down the old coal pit.
