What a great way to spend an hour.
The guide was really knowledgeable as he still works as a free miner.
Fascinating learning how people in the Forest of Dean used to work.
It is quite cold down there so no matter how warm it is above ground wear a jumper.
Had lunch in the cafe while we waited and the cheese toastie was amazing.
They only take online bookings so make sure you either print it of or have it ready to show on your phone.

One of the most fascinating mine visits we’ve done. The guide through his real life experience and anecdotes was thoroughly engaging. The minute in the pitch black dark of the mine was a visceral image of what it would have been like to work in the environment. Couldn’t recommend more.

The Guide we had for our tour of the colliery was fantastic . He was so knowledgeable and engaging about the mining, all of the children in our party really learnt alot and without realising it as they enjoyed it so much! I am so glad that we came across this fantastic gem in the Forest of Dean.

A really first class experience. The tour was led by Rich who is a real Freeminer and gave a fascinating insight into both past and current mining in the area. Not only did I feel we learnt a lot we also got a proper feel about what it is like for mining in the extraordinary mining area. Rich was great with the kids in our group and I cannot praise his gentle, frank and engaging style enough. Highly recommended!

A really genuine ‘feel for how it was’ from this underground adventure, Rich is a superb guide with encyclopaedic knowledge of all things freemining and coal.

Excellent value for money, friendly staff and great food at the on site cafe too

A must visit

Saw the mine advertised in a local leaflet but it was close by where were were staying in Clearwell so we booked on line that day and went on their last guided tour of the day. It’s a working coal mine and we were taken taken down a steep decline to the coal face. We each got a hard hat with a light attached. I took my 14 and 10 old and they were fascinated even though both had initially moaned about going. Our guide, Rich I believe his name was, was very informative, knowledgeable and happy to answer lots of questions. We almost didn’t go but I’m so pleased we did, great bit of education for me and the kids. There is a free car park on site as well as a cafe and toilet and some outdoor seating.

Called in today on spec following a recommendation which was well justified. Rich, a Freeminer of many years experience, took us underground. Very knowledgable, answered all questions and made for a very interesting and knowledgable tour.
TIP Book ahead on the internet - internet locally is iffy - but you can just turn up. Be aware it may get busy… Rich was expecting a school visit following our tour.

An excellent informative tour for all ages. Rich, the guide, is an experienced Freeminer so knows his stuff! Wear walking shoes or boots and a coat that you don't mind a bit of dirt on.

We stumbled upon this place at the last minute and as we hadn't booked online we luckily had cash to buy some tickets on spec. Tip: the mobile data around this area is patchy if not non existent. Rich was our guide and was awsome. Knowledgeable and personable he made the short tour very interesting and worthwhile. We had lunch in the cafe which was really great value. A great experience had.
