NCM – The National Coal Mining Museum for England

well worth a visit:online or in person

The National Coal Mining Museum is inbetween Wakefield and Huddersfield in Yorkshire, it’s great and it’s free. I’ve visited it several times and can recommend.

Very good museum for school children to visit.

For those of you not lucky enough to live in Yorkshire check out the virtual tours.

Simply the best online first person shooting game on the planet. I play it regularly but I’m still not that good – time to renew my membership of the ‘Not terribly Good Club of Great Britain’. As Viz comic said:

‘The British are the best at coming second. In fact if there was an Olympic event for coming second, we’d get the silver medal.’
