A SPECIAL exhibition on the miners' strike of 1984/85 is on show at Experience Barnsley.

The 'Coal Not Dole' exhibition explores the story of the Barnsley women who formed their own powerful group to support the striking miners and their families.

Thousands faced job losses from pit closures in the 1980s, but Barnsley's women fought back with a campaign that gained international support.

Coun Roy Miller, cabinet spokesperson for development, environment and culture, said: "Visitors will be able to relive the year of the strike through the eyes of the Women Against Pit Closures movement."
