  • We really enjoyed this visit, it was interesting & educational. We were both really pleased we went, it's not the sort of attraction you need to visit twice, but you should definitely visit it once. 
  • I went to this attraction on the way to the coast. It is quite isolated. I wouldn’t go to this attraction as a final destination as you will be disappointed. My interest in this attraction was stimula...  more »

  • Bring your walking boots, 95 acres to explore! Great place to come to.
  • Great & informative. Nice that you can go down into the mine. Endless playing hide and seek there, with so many pits, mounds, grasses and chasms. One thing though: there should be another mine to exit from to speed up the leaving process
  • Really interesting. Friendly staff
  • Not a lot there, but low cost.
  • As a child I used to visit the site, 64 years ago. Had good fun looking around the site and crawling through the tunnels with a torch to see the Black Flint at the base of the pillars of Chalk. Learnt how to make a Flint Stone lamp, by getting a large piece of chalk and with a piece of Flint or something sharp make a hollow in the chalk and poring some oil in and getting some moss that is not wet, to use as the wick. We used matches to get it to light. I don't know how Fred and his family lit the lamp ? We as a family lived for a time at Pine Vista on the Brandon, Mundford Road. It was my Mother and Father who founded the 'Pine Vista Cafe' in 1954, as I remember. Great times in Brandon ! A town that has expanded and developed from our start of living at Market House, in 1949. Happy time at the School at the top of Market Hill.
