We are in the process of creating Townhill Mining Heritage Garden in Townhill Park, Townhill, Dunfermline paying tribute to our miners.
The contractors have started work in the park, life size wooden carvings of mining children, a pit pony and a miner and his wife will be ready soon and we are in the process of putting images together for the seven A1 information panels in the Education through Play area. .
We are a community organisation and the garden will have free access for all.
The Titles for the Panels are : Children in the pits, The Dark Side of the Mines, Life of the Pit Ponies, Geology and Transportation, Education, Mining Life in Townhill and a Welcome panel including information on Townhill Colliery Muircockhall Colliery and the Bevin Boys.
I have attached the final plan for Phase one. (Phase two will be a timeline pathway snaking through the park where park visitors can walk in the footsteps of the miners throughout the years.)
Thank you, any help would be very much appreciated.
