INHER – Industrial Heritage Matters, is all about educating people about Britain’s extensive industrial past; specifically focusing on our mining heritage.
As a caver and mine explorer, I often get to explore these long-abandoned places for myself. Discovering some of the dangers that miners and industrial workers faced, as little as 20 years ago, all the way back to 2000 years ago.
Using the likes of Photogrammetry and LIDAR, I am starting to catalogue industrial sites, so that future generations will still be able to explore this island long industrial past.
With industrial archaeology not really seen as a major discipline, we are losing lots of our heritage to both neglect and construction. INHER Matter’s is trying to change people’s perceptions on this matter.
