Event description

Description

The Chatterley Whitfield Colliery site is acknowledged to be the most comprehensive survival of a deep mine site in England, with a range of surviving structures and buildings unequalled in any other former or surviving coalfield site in Great Britain. It is not usually open to the public, however this FREE guided tour by The Chatterley Whitfield Friends will allow you to appreciate the array of buildings on site, which makes Chatterley Whitfield Colliery so unique. Sorry but no underground tours. Please come and join us before, or after your tour for a chat and a cuppa!

Tours will be between 10.00-15.30. Pre-booking is essential - You will not be allowed onto the site unless you have booked in advance. Please arrive in plenty of time for your tour and bring your ticket with you as it is a ticket only event.

Refreshments will be available so feel free to come early for a coffee and biscuit
