Threlkeld Quarry and Mining MuseumKeswick, Cumbria
Their narrow gauge railway provides rides above ground on their selection of engines. Equally exciting however is the ride in a reconditioned mine train, which dips into the inner quarry allowing unusual views of the quarry face! Around this area you can also find the impressive vintage machinery to look at, including functional excavators - in fact it's even home to the Vintage Excavator Trust!
The Quarry and Mining Rooms each offer a range of artefacts and memorabilia related to their themes, with strong educational value throughout. Plenty to see and do and certainly plenty to learn!
