Events diary:

The calender below shows forthcoming society events and other events related to mining history that may be of interest.  You can click on individual days/events on the calender to retrieve further details.  If you are the organiser or promoter of a (not-for-profit) event that you would like listed here, please send details through to the webmaster - details are on the contact us page.

Some events, such as underground meets or surface walks, can be liable to last-minute changes due to weather conditions, or the ability to gain permission for access/parking/etc.  Where possible we try to keep this diary up-to-date, so it is worth double-checking meet details here prior to setting out!

Lead Mining Heritage Walk - Field Grove Mine, Sheldon

An easy 3-mile walk visiting the well-preserved 19th century mining complex at Field Grove Mine, as well as Greengates mine and Sheldon churchyard. Meet at the Cock and Pullet, Sheldon at 7.15, optional food and drink there afterwards.
We are definitely not going underground on this walk, but to give you an idea of what is actually down there, you can watch this video on YouTube.
