'Pit Talk' research project at Bestwood Country Park, 19 October 2013

Researchers at Nottingham Trent University are studying  the language of the Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire coalfields. The project is called 'Pit Talk' and is led by Dr Natalie Braber and they will be asking visitors to add their own terms and phrases during an event at Bestwood Country Park from 10am on Saturday 19 October.

If you have links with mining and the East Midlands collieries and wish share any examples of pit talk, you can contact Natalie by email at natalie.braber@ntu.ac.uk

The Nottingham Trent University event, at Dynamo House and Bestwood Winding Engine House, Bestwood Country Park, Park Road, Bestwood, NG6 8ZA, is supported by Nottinghamshire County Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
