Please remove this listing as it is no longer there. There is a mining museum in threlkeld and a slate mine at Honister pass but both visits require a car.

The wall isn't very high, more bouldering but a good option if its wet. Shame its moved to outside the town

“Confused reviews.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

As this museum is now closed ,unfortunately, due to retirement. Some of these reviewers appear confused as they must have visited the Threlkeld mining museum as they mention the train and the underground mine experience. Although different it is well worth a visit if you are interested in geology or like steam trains or vintage excavators.

“half a day well spent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

Interesting - not for little ones though. The train ride left me covered in sooty bits but was fun. Lots of lovely chunks of slate just lying about!
