Entry at last!

Following the celebratory sip of bubbly, the plan was for Wendy, assisted by Twinkle, to cut the tape, but she decided that as her husband Joe was one of those who built the gate, it would be most special for their grandchildren to do the honours.

We would like to thank Pearce Constructions for their support in licensing access to Manning’s Pit from Windsor Road, and to Tozers and Wollens for their assistance in enabling this to happen.

It completes the wonderful achievement by all the local community and supporters from across the world. Together – in the words of Ryan Voules whose poem inspired us all – we have saved Manning’s Pit.
