The lead vein or rake outcrops to the surface to the west of the village and dives under the rocks of Hucklow Edge on the western side of the village where an adit, known as Milldam Mine, has recently been reopened by Glebe Mines Ltd that connects the various deep mines that had formerly been dug along the edge. This mine is being worked for fluorspar, which is frequently found associated with lead in the vein.In the village, there is a thriving primary school, which is located up a short lane, under the edge, and a pub, the Queen Anne.It had a theatre for 40 years, which was run by L. du Garde Peach and the actors and staff were from the local area. The first production was in 1927 staged in the Hucklow Holiday Homes. The first set of plays in the New Play House was in 1938, with four one act plays written by Peach. The New Play House was in a converted lead mining building . The first 200-second hand seats cost 1 shilling and 9 pence each. The stage was 28ft wide by 30ft deep. For many years the theatre brought many visitors to Great Hucklow from all parts of the north of England. The theatre building is still used as an activity centre.
