Mining was carried out in Arigna for 400 years until 1990 when the mines finally closed.
The work of a miner was exhausting and often hazardous, with working conditions that were very harsh and cramped.
Experience this for yourself at Arigna Mining Museum. Walk underground through what was the last working mine in Arigna and see how the coal was mined.
