The Miners of Kent, past and present, deserve to be remembered and it is important to show this country we are still here and still together as one Community.
Special thanks must go to the Heritage Lottery Fund for supporting this project. Their grant will allow us to continue to Rejuvenate and Revigorate our Kent Miners Heritage.
The Miner’s Statue was commissioned by the Central Electricity Board, the sculpture was Mr. H.R. Philips and it was originally bound for FerryBridge power station in Yorkshire.
However it was later decided to site the statue outside Richborough power station to commend the Miner’s of Kent for recognition of all their hard work and toil in keeping the Power Station working and producing electricity all year round.
When the station closed the C.E.B donated the statue to D.D.C, with Dover Museum being the curators, they then had to find an appropriate place for the Statue to be sited. more
