Thu 2 Apr - Tue 30 Jun The Colliers at Featherstone Museum Hub

Details

In collaboration with Featherstone Rovers Wakefield Museums and Castles have developed a new museum hub in the shop at the LD Nutrition Stadium.

This display explores coal mining, which has long been associated with Featherstone. Featherstone Trinity Rugby league Football Club was first formed in 1889, becoming Featherstone Rovers in 1902. Rugby League was popular among mining communities and it was not uncommon for many teams at this time to be made up entirely of miners. Featherstone Rovers’ official nickname is still, ‘The Colliers’.
