GUEST,David Nuttall, Wakefield who comes from coal miners? (109* d) RE: who comes from coal miners? 18 Oct 15

Thankyou for that , Guest , ...16th Oct ! It,s a very unselfish love which parents often have for their family as displayed by them doing such hard , dangerous and demanding jobs to provide for them. I often reflect on fishermen ,too ,who endure tremendous hardship and danger to earn their living....such a hard life ! Both mining ( of many different kinds ) and deep sea fishing have been the focus of so many great songs over the years. Someone has said that the best three things to have emerged from the coal mining industry has been the coal , the camaraderie and the songs !! I would recommend a guided tour / visit to the National Coal Mining Museum , Caphouse Colliery, near Wakefield to experience first- hand a visit to the coal face... it is a truly inspirational visit with artefacts and paintings, photographs , memorabilia and changing exhibitions to provide a great insight into mining life.
