Summer Event 2015

Following on from a successful event in 2013, the Snailbeach and Stiperstones communities are organising another ‘Beach Party’ for this summer and Shropshire Mines Trust will have a major involvement.

On Sunday 12th July, SMT will open up the Snailbeach mine site – including the longer

underground tours of Roberts/Perkins level – these tours can be booked at the fete field stall on the

Saturday or by contacting Steve Holding in advance.

Tankerville Mine

A lot of work, largely funded by English Heritage, has recently been completed and the site is again open to the public.

The only public access is the footpath from the top road (we recommend that you park at ‘Burgam Corner’ and walk along the road. We will be looking for volunteer help in early 2015 to get the site looking tidy and to put in steps to the lower part of the site.
