The Lewarde Historical Mining Centre is also an adventure to share with the family! A half-day that promises to be full of twists and turns:
– The Delloye Pit: visit the pit, the lamp house, the extraction machinery buildings, the administrative offices as they existed in 1930… During your free visit, discover how this incredible mine functioned at the peak of its operations!
– Guided tour in the bowels of the earth, in the heart of the mine: for one hour, with a helmet on, you can venture into the narrow passages, so familiar to the miners of yesteryear, and discover the evolution of techniques as mining developed. Put your ear to the ground: can you hear the sound of machines coming back to life? You are plunged into the last century, alongside the courageous miners, for a total immersion in the working conditions of the time!
– the personal testimony: let a former miner tell you about life in the mine. An emotional experience to listen to this rare testimony, doomed to disappear with time…
