Mine tubs are popular with local councils for flower arangements and art installations, however most are modern interpretations that use a lot of artistic license.

This one looks much more like the real thing and could well have some original parts.

I’ve tried to contact the school for any details of its history, but they are yet to respond. I’m hoping it has some link to the nearby Longacres mine.
