New! Resource Pack for Schools about Markham’s Mining Heritage now available

As part of The Story Mine Project a schools resource pack has been bespokely designed by Derbyshire Record Office to support learning about Markham’s mining heritage with schools and their pupils. The pack is designed to develop pupils’ local knowledge and sense of identity through a study of Markham Colliery, using real historical documents of the colliery plus other appropriate sources. The pack works in conjunction with the oral histories and other source material gathered on The Story Mine website.

 The pdf resource pack is designed to be used by teachers in conjunction with an accompanying CD of historical sources. For copyright reasons these historical sources cannot be shared on this website, but anyone who wishes to utilise the pack in their school can do so for a fee via the Services for Schools website.
