    Shift work meant that at any one time well over 1000 miners would be underground at any one time. This required some logistics in terms of ensuring they all had fully charged lamps before embarking on their journey to the coalface. The lamp house is their first port of call after changing to their working clothes.

    To compliment the other activities on the site we need somewhere to have fun, the lamp house will become a media centre during the day and an entertainment venue in the evenings. this can be done in such a way as to retain most of the existing features.
