Clearwell Caves - Ancient Iron Mines and its collection

Clearwell Caves - Ancient Iron Mines
Source

The show caves are a part of an extensive natural cave system, mined for iron ore to make one of Britain's most complex and oldest mine workings; dating back well over 4,500 years, when Neolithic miners dug for ochre pigments. Nine atmospheric ancient caverns are open to visitors, that have an exciting and intriguing past. You will see why television programmes like Dr Who and Merlin have chosen to film here. Walk through intriguing, sometimes eerie, iron ore workings and tunnels, following in the footsteps of generations of miners, who cut their livelihood from the rock.
