The South Gloucestershire Mines Research Group was set up to record and, where appropriate, preserve the remains of what was once an extensive industry.

All are welcome to attend the event on Wednesday, March 7, which starts at 8pm at Coalpit Heath Village Hall, Badminton Road. Admission is £2 for non-members.
