Miners' Tribute by Antony Dufort
Miners' Tribute by Antony Dufort
In the area of Cinderford known as The Triangle is Dufort's superb sculpture. Coal mining was one of the area’s main industries until the last of the five mines closed in 1965, and is still undertaken at a few small mines operated by Freeminers. The centuries old mining rights which applied to iron ore, coal and other minerals and even quarrying for stone, entitle any male born within the hundred of St Briavels, aged 21 or more and who has worked for a year and a day in a mine to legally register as a Freeminer.
