The Full Monty

After leaving London, I travelled up to Sheffield by train, where I would base myself for a couple of days while I visited a couple of nearby Mines. Not a bad city, famous for its stainless steel and the movie the Full Monty.
Transport within the city is quite good, with trams and buses running regularly, but becuase I'm travelling out of town I hired a car to get around. First point of call was the National Coal Mining Museum, a discontinued coal mine now used to show visitors how the industry has developed and changed over the last couple of hundred years. The museum includes an underground tour of Caphouse colliery to a seam discontinued in 1913, 140m below the surface.
