|wave| Trish ..... If only ..... the two saddest words in the Dictionary. If you Click Here (http://www.wwmm.org/storie/storia.asp?id_storia=191&pagina=8&project=0&trad=) this will explain and illustrate what a Hurrier did.

The Mining Museum is in Middlestown, not too far away from Emley. It used to be Caphouse Colliery when it was a working mine and my Gt. Grandfather started work there as a hurrier. :(
