Mine Study

Key topics for this day are history, geology, science and geography. We will take your class down a mine in the Peak District and show them first hand evidence of how and what minerals were extracted, what life was like for the miners and how they would have lived. You might even get to hear the story of Lost John the Mining Boy…

We also use the visit to prove that this whole area was once covered by a warm, tropical sea by finding fossilised remains of sea creatures!
