Remembering the Waterloo Colliery
(aka the Arthur and Edward, Upper Lydbrook)
On Sunday 30th June 2019
To mark the 70th anniversary of Waterloo’s 1949 flooding, Hopewell Colliery is hosting a free exhibition of old photographs and maps of the Waterloo Colliery, one the Forest’s deep mines. The photographs show the colliery buildings, the Waterloo Creeper, workers, scenes from the 1949 rescue, some underground maps and a detailed site plan.
Drop by at any time from 10.30 am until 4.00 pm. Memories or old photos especially welcome.
Entrance to the exhibition is free. Refreshments available at the Hopewell Café.
For directions and amenities, see Hopewell’s website:
