Events diary:

The calender below shows forthcoming society events and other events related to mining history that may be of interest.  You can click on individual days/events on the calender to retrieve further details.  If you are the organiser or promoter of a (not-for-profit) event that you would like listed here, please send details through to the webmaster - details are on the contact us page.

Some events, such as underground meets or surface walks, can be liable to last-minute changes due to weather conditions, or the ability to gain permission for access/parking/etc.  Where possible we try to keep this diary up-to-date, so it is worth double-checking meet details here prior to setting out!

Mining Walk - Whale Sough and Hubberdale Mine.

Leader: Adam Russell.
This walk replaces the one originally scheduled for February 11th, which had to be postponed due to adverse weather.
An easy afternoon walk, lasting 3-4 hours, and being about 4-5 miles in length. No prior booking required - all welcome. 
Meet at 12 noon in the lay-by near Hard Rake between Flagg and Sheldon (grid ref SK 157685). The walk will trace the course of Whale Sough from its tail in Deepdale, across Whale Pasture and on to Hubberdale Mine. We will hopefully also visit Fidlers and Two Gins Shafts.
Please note: Due to the time of year and its exposed location up on the limestone plateau, this walk is very weather dependant. Please check the website for the latest information before you set out.
