Tredegar House and the Big Pit

As you can tell, we certainly love the old houses and the National Trust ones are always so interesting. It is wonderful to read about the families who lived in them and their history. Penny, Bruce and I ventured out here on Wednesday. 

 Yesterday, Bruce and I headed into Wales to the Big Pit National Coal Museum at Blaenafon. We went down 90m into the Big Pit. It was quite an experience! It was a tough life for miners and their families in the olden times of mining.

There were so many stories of the miners and their families in the Museum. It was a very moving exhibition.
