Hope Pit Explore

This summer, we're excited to once again be offering visitors the chance to enjoy an interactive exploration of the Hope Pit area of the site with our volunteer team. Discover the people, the places and the expertise that was required to support the underground miners.


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

21st July, 4th August, 18th August, 25th August and 1st September at 1pm and 2pm for 40 minutes.

This event is included in £5 per car admission charge, please book your place upon arrival.
