Lucknow #94

Lucknow has its mining history on proud display with two poppet heads speaking of the towns mining past. Apparently there is a near intact gold stamper battery in one of the sheds that is open to the public. We must stop a while and go look at it one day. The other treasure in this town is an huge second hand shop full of loads of wonderful junk.


  1. Hereabout there was until quite recent times quite a few mines but this was coal and they have almost all closed and gone. Now due the the politicians short sightedness we pay for fuel ever increasing costs. The coal is still mostly there but we now have no people with the skills to mine it or the will politically to do so.
