Brilliant experience. Rich, our guide, who was a Free Miner himself, explained everything about the Free Miners, and how they worked the coal seams. He welcomed questions and told us about the geology and the technical details of mining and added interesting facts that made the whole experience riveting.

I learned so much about coal mining in the Forest and coal mining in general. Geology, history, the work, history: just brilliant! Thank you to Rich, our guide who answered everybody's questions with patience and in a way that we could really understand. Rich is a Free miner. A pleasure to meet him and be guided by him. Thanks again.

An absolutely fascinating tour down a mine to hear the history of this form of artisan 'Freemining'. As a still active miner, Rick was a real fund of information on all aspects of this form of mining operation ....what a tough way to earn a living!!
Could not recommend this tour highly enough.

Having been down the Big Pit previously (an incredible experience) I was doubtful this would offer much, but I was surprised. It’s different enough to be an experience of its own. Instead of a lift, you walk down a steep walkway/shaft into the mine which take a few minutes in the pitch black (though you are wearing a torch) and that in itself makes the experience worthwhile. There is a handrail to hold on to but if you have problems walking, be aware. My mum is 75 and she was ‘ok’, though she found walking back up hard as it is steep, and there was an elderly man in our group with a walking stick who also did ok). When you get to the bottom, your miner (ours was Rich) will explain everything in detail, showing you the coal seams, tools, and how dark it is without no light. The mine is still in use by the freeminers and there is an interesting story that goes back centuries regarding their right to mine. Unlike the Big Pit, you are able to take photos down the mine as they do not have a problem with methane in the Forest of Dean.
Excellent experience; make sure you prebook online.
There is a café and toilets on site.

A truly immersive experience with a genuine Forest Freeminer. Rick took us underground and explained everything so clearly. No questions could he not answer. Highly recommended and very good value, with an excellent cafe to relax in afterwards! Do not miss it!

Absolutely incredible tour with Rich - as a family of five we were captivated by the fascinating history of this fantastic place! The cafe had lovely food too, with the most beautiful views of this magical place. Rich was fantastic with all the children asking lots of questions! Thank you!

Interesting underground tour from a proper working miner. Takes about an hour. There’s lots of information in the waiting room about the history of free-mining in the Forest of Dean to read too.

Excellent cafe alongside that does full meals but also coffee and cake.

The passage down into the mine is quite steep so may not be suitable for everyone, and proper walking shoes or boots would be a good idea.

The tour guide was very insightful and was happy answering all our questions. It was very moving to know he had changed history and help others in fighting for their rights to the public Forest of Dean. Recommend a visit although the tour itself didn’t go too far.

Really fantastic knowledgeable guide who was brilliant, the tour explained mining by Freeminers and their history. There is Amos cafe which is Fab. Only wish I had taken a photo wearing the miner’s helmet.

What a wonderful place. The underground tour gives you a detailed explanation of what mining a narrow coal seam is like. The geology is explained very clearly too.
And the cafe is good too.
