Caption: Here part of a shift is seen waiting to descend into Cook's Shaft. This picture was taken shortly before the mine ceased operating on 7 March 1998. As more and more mines are converted into museums and tourist attractions, so a tradition stretching back generations is gradually dying out.
Photographer: P Williams Date Taken: February 1998
