Good Luck Mine and Caphouse Colliery

Our mining team have been on a couple of field trips to see other mines.  It’s always great to get out and experience what other organisations are doing.  A few weeks ago the folks at Goodluck Mine near Matlock were kind enough to let us visit them, which we all thoroughly enjoyed.  Goodluck is a lead mine run by volunteers and is available to visit by appointment, or on one of their open days. Parking is in a lay-by and after a climb up a footpath leading up a wooded hill side you get to the mine entrance.  The volunteers from Goodluck will be visiting Apedale soon, on a reciprocal visit.

we’ve also recently had a trip up to the National Coal Mining Museum for England, and as always we were made very welcome by the team up there, and got to see some of the less well travelled parts of the mine.
