The outings were the highlight of the social calendar for the families of Mansfield miners – with many children getting their first experience of train travel and getting to spend important time with their parents.

From a packed train station of excited children to fairground fun and donkey rides, this gallery should bring back fond memories for our miners and their families.

Have a look through and see if you can spot any familiar faces.
