Jane Pit Community Questionnaire
Workington Town Council and other partners are looking at creating a memorial to the miners of Workington by stabilising the Jane Pit buildings, the only remaining pit head and buildings in the town and also creating a much improved community area. The area would also provide information on the history and heritage of the site.

We wanted to ask your opinion on the area, how it’s currently used and what you would like to see done with the site.

The questionnaire should only take 5 minutes to complete.
