A school visit in the mine

Apedale can offer a unique experience for schools, universities and other training or research requirements.

The experience is like no other, as pupils actually have a guided tour underground and are surrounded by the unique atmosphere of a real coal mine that was once the workplace for hundreds of miners.

Along with an interesting and informative museum, a welcoming café and the surrounding countryside of Apedale Community Country Park, we offer schools an excellent educational package linked to the National Curriculum.

For University Students and Adult groups we can offer an experience tailored to your training or research needs.

The price for education is £110 for up to a maximum of 30 students.  There’s no charge for Teachers and Assistants and they don’t count towards the group size.
