Lumpsey Mine

Giving a good view of a miner using a hand ratchet drill, drilling holes ready for the charges by the shotfirer. David Richardson tells us: ”An excellent photo of a miner in the process of drilling a hole using a Blackett Hutton Hand Rotary Drill and while Hardy Pick Ratchet Drills were used they are operated much differently to the Blackett Huttons.”
Photo courtesy of George Pearson and thanks to David for that update.
