The Waterloo exhibition now on at Dean Heritage Centre – poster attached – is well worth seeing. It runs until the end of December and has been created by Steven Carter. He grew up in the Forest and became interested in his grandfather’s role in the 1949 flooding. Steve has carried out considerable research and produced a fantastic exhibition, covering the beginnings, the name, the flooding and the closure. It offers new insights and pays tribute to the hard working miners of the Forest.
