Education at King Edward Mine


At King Edward Mine Museum we have good indoor facilities for groups in the historically important Survey Office with its huge draftsmen's tables and stools, used by former mining students. There is a well-laid out, yet compact, museum ideal for groups of pupils to work in. Experts lead trails through the mill where pupils can observe the turning, winding, shaking and splashing heritage machinery. On wet days it is quite possible to fill every minute with purposeful activity indoors while on clear days the choice is even greater with stunning views along the Great Flat Lode trail with its myriad engine house chimneys. Workshops cover STEM and humanities topics.

From a school visit 2015  “ I am writing to tell you that I had fun at your wonderful mine. It is a beautiful place and I loved it.”[I enjoyed] "…the bit where you turned on that wheel and shaker table.  Another thing I enjoyed was going on that awesome trail and another thing I enjoyed was the entire thing. The staff were incredibly friendly, lots of stuff to read and look at. I will definitely be back…”

Learning Pages
The Learning Pages on this website have been designed for pupils to read and access on their own. They are full of interesting information and photographs that can be used for research projects, and also have a series of puzzles included to help your pupils learn about King Edward Mine and their local mining heritage in a fun and engaging way.
