Miners memorial Roll of Honour Sculpture

Historic records indicate that over the years some 600 men died because of accidents at work in the local mines and quarries. These men are remembered through the ‘Miners Memorial’ at the New Fancy site.

The unique ‘Roll of Honour’ sculpture was erected to the memory of all those men who lost their lives in the coal and iron mines and quarries of the Forest of Dean.

Finally, many of the original features of the New Fancy coal mine can be safely viewed at the site, thus enabling a visitor to gain an insight into the once economically dominant but now largely vanished mining and quarrying industries of the Forest of Dean.
