Unfortunately, the Loomer Road entrance gates to the country park are currently locked due to a small traveller camp at the end of Loomer road. This means that the car parks by the heritage centre are not accessible by car. There is alternative parking on the carparks off black bank road. See the map below for location details. We’ll do our best to stay open but, during this period we’d recommend calling ahead if you would like to visit the museum or for a mine tour on 01782 565050. Updates will be posted when we have more information.
Update 5th April 2014. Still no change to the situation, the local paper has reported on the story here.
