Explore Hope Pit

There’s more to mining than digging! Join us on an interactive tour lead by volunteers around Hope Pit. Find out about this historic part of our site. Learn the stories of the buildings and the many different roles miners did above ground.


Get hands-on with mining interventions and techniques and walk the Lister-Kaye Roadway that helped to convey coal to national markets.
