Sunday 5th November 2017. Meet 9.45am for 10.00am start.
Leader: Paul Chandler(GLMPC/PDMHS).
Meet in the layby below the mine spoil tip in the Via Gellia on the A5012 (grid ref SK 269566). If the layby is full, further parking is available in the next layby up the Via Gellia (heading west), approx 0.5 mile away. A map showing the layby can be seen here.
A surface tour of Goodluck Mine will be followed by an underground tour. Allow 2 to 2.5 hours for the whole visit. The underground part is an easy grade trip, with mostly walking/stooping size passages and dry – apart from the odd puddle. Well worth bringing a camera for the superb mine inscriptions, artefacts and displays.
This is an ideal trip for novices/experienced explorers alike. Even though the trip is restricted to the ‘visitor route’ in the mine for insurance purposes, you will still see a large part of the underground workings.
This visit is courtesy of Goodluck Mine Preservation Club. A donation fee of £5 is payable. SIX PLACES ONLY – BOOKING ESSENTIAL.
