Miner tribute will be made

Have your say

A MEMORIAL to Prestonpans miners who died in the town’s pits is on track to be completed by the end of the year.

Sculptor Gardner Molloy initially struggled to find suitable materials for the seven-stone artwork, but has now found two large sandstone blocks at a Newcastle quarry which he hopes will be ideal.

Mr Molloy said he was looking forward to getting the project under way, with the memorial set to depict two people working inside a mine.

A location has been put out for local consultation.
