I wonder if they still have this exhibit at Yeadon.
Yep that's the one I can remember.
Is this the end of the story ...or the beginning of a legend?

The museum was replaced by the Midland Bank building (Now the HSBC). That building goes down two or three floors below ground I think, with vaults and plant rooms. I was taken down the 'mine' by my school, I seem to remember the walls of the 'mine' being made from something like plaster or fibreglass.

A vague memory I have is of there being a stuffed tiger there, which was moved to the museum near the Town Hall. I remember it for the fact that I am an hopeless artist, but managed to make a decent drawing of the tiger.
