The extreme grotto, complete with fireplace, stockings, baubles and gifts, has been created as part of the National Coal Mining Museum’s Christmas celebrations.

The transformed mine, which will be home to Santa until December 23, is at the museum’s site in Wakefield.

It will be open for the next two weekends and daily from December 19.
