  • We arrived (family with 3 between 6 & 9 years) wanting a train ride but instead went on a mine tour. Dudley Dave gave a very informative tour of a very authentic coal mine. This is the closest we have ever come to being in a working mine and without the usual, extreme health and safety it felt very real. All of the staff are very passionate, knowledgeable and helpful. The museum is also worth wandering around and the quizzes keep the kids engaged and educated. A great afternoon was completed by a stroll in the country park.
  • Went on a Geography field trip from Keele University, the walks around Apedale were lovely and the museum inside the Heritage Centre was very interesting, especially since I am a local! Would love to go on one of the mining trips :)
  • What fab people who give their time so selflessly to run this great little oasis. Food was ace! Staffordshire oatcakes with bacon & cheese..food of the gods. X
  • Go down a coal mine or ride a train, see WW1 trains ready for the trenches or relax in a lovely cafe fun for all.
  • Called in to visit the museum and ended up on a mine tour with one of the Dave's 😉 Brilliant! Informative and fun would recommend a visit
