Moving the stone at New Fancy

​​The approx. 3 tonne stone which has been kindly donated to the Society to house a commemorative plaque for the New Fancy mine, was moved today by local builder Keith Bell’s big machine and hard-working men.

Here are a couple of photos – there were lots of cameras and the press was also there, so watch out for more on this.
This has been a real community effort and has taken some time, so many thanks to all involved. Now to get the actual plaque in place…. Will keep you posted.
