Peak District Lead Mine Museum

The Peak District Lead Mine Museum in Matlock Bath is an excellent little museum dedicated to (as the name states) mining, especially of lead, around the Peak District. I found their collection of artifacts very interesting indeed especially the mineral samples and the wagons which used to transport ore deep underground. I'm glad I didn't have to become a miner like my great-grandfather did (for coal)! You can see my photos at the museum in my Matlock Bath set.
