A Community Drama to commemorate the Huskar Pit disaster in 1838. 26 children between the ages of 7 and 17, working as 'hurriers' and 'trappers', were drowned after the dayhole through which they were attempting to escape from the Husker (or Huskar) Pit at Silkstone was flooded. There was a public outcry, led by politician and the reformer Anthony Ashley Cooper, later Lord Shaftesbury. He called for a Royal Commission of inquiry into the working conditions of children and women in Britain's mines. Eventually the law was changed and women and children could no longer work in the mines. The play was performed in Silkstone on the 4th July 2008, the 170th anniversary of the flood.
