Like the collieries and surrounding villages of Kent, people are at the heart of our new museum. Our aim is to collect and preserve the East Kent Coalfield’s unique heritage for people to explore and enjoy, now and in the future.
Every object tells a story and we’re already off to a great start with building the museum’s collection. But we need more stories – your stories, and we’d really like you to get involved.
If you have something, a badge, books, photographs, Davy lamp, tools or a grandparent’s diary telling of their journey to Kent, please get in touch. We can give them a safe home where they’ll be used, shared with future generations and not hidden away.
Or maybe you have a story to tell about you or your family?
Fill in your details on the memory board, drop us a line or give us a call; we’d love to visit you, hear your tales and record your memories.
As our collection grows we will have a fully searchable online database (coming 2018).
