Daisy Knoll/Knowle Gritstone Mine
« on: December 20, 2021, 10:06:26 pm »
I'm going to be in the vicinity of Longnor between Christmas and New Year and fancy an easy underground potter. Are there any access issues with this mine?

Not issues but it is on private land right near the owners house so not really "open".
I don't know if they allow general access or not. They did allow it to be surveyed and recorded a few years ago.
You could try asking the owner and hope for a yes?

Ah, Ok. Maybe not one for a casual trip then. I knew it was behind the farm but wasn't aware how close.

For an easy u/g trip in that neck of the woods, I'd suggest heading down to Ecton and doing Limepits?

How about a trip around Owl Hole?
