    For the second year running, North Wales Miners Association Trust will again be opening the gates of Bersham Colliery to the public on Easter Sunday. Entry is free although donations are very welcome. Sensible footwear is a must.
    Bersham Colliery is an open air museum complete with a Grade 2 listed Engine House and the no. 2 Headgear which is classified as a structural monument. There are many large artefacts on the colliery yard which were saved when the coal industry was decimated, in the hope that at some point the Engine House would be converted into a mining museum. The old colliery buildings are still intact and used by Bersham Enterprise Centre. The colliery closed in 1986, the last working pit in the old Denbighshire coalfield.
    Last year NWMAT converted an ex library bus into a mobile museum which is on site at Bersham on the last Sunday of each month throughout the summer months.
    The mobile museum is a multipurpose vehicle which ex miners take out to schools and community events throughout the old mining areas of North Wales. It is used as a museum, a visitor centre and even a recording studio for recording ex miners and their families talking about their lives when the mines were open.
    The aim of the Trust is to talk to children about their mining heritage, to preserve what is left of the industry and to record memories.
    They collect mine related photos and documents, small artefacts & memorabilia to show in the mobile museum in the hope that one day they will be able to show them off in the engine house.
