Dale Mine Project Talk and Meeting

Monday 15th April

Warslow Village Hall

7:00pm (tbc)

For registered SWP Volunteers

Dale Mine, by the River Manifold at Warslow in the South West Peak, was a large 18th and 19th Century lead- and zinc-ore mine; it lies opposite, and historically was overshadowed by, the well-known Ecton copper mines. Join us for this volunteer recruitment meeting about this fascinating yet, until now, little known site and see how you can be involved in the dissemination of the results of the latest archaeological survey work, the repair of the ore bins, possible archaeological excavation and, ultimately, adoption of this site.

A talk by Dr John Barnatt will be followed by questions and discussion about how we can take things forward. The aim of this event is to create a working group that are willing to commit time and effort to undertake work at the site and create interpretation for visitors. A site visit will take place on Saturday 20th April (see separate activity).

If you want to take part in the Dale Mine Project, it is advisable for you to attend both this meeting and the site visit on Saturday 20th April. If you cannot attend one or the other please contact Catherine at
