The Museum of Lead Mining Logo

A lot has been happening since we closed last season, including our new branding and logo, as you can see we have gone back to Museum of Lead Mining, and we were so lucky to get help for this from Museum Galleries Scotland through grant funding so that we could work with the amazing Design 33 folk from Edinburgh who have done a great job on developing our new website and redesign of our Logo, also our new leaflets which many of you will have seen by now on the shelves at many places; this was done with the help of Zellin Design and we thank them so much for helping to produce what is a great new look leaflet.

It has been full steam ahead for us since our closing at end of September and lots of things have been happening behind the scenes, from not just the new website and displays but looking at our future.

We would like to say at this time a huge thanks to our volunteers and staff members who have worked so hard to make sure we open and a huge welcome to our new staff for the season.

    Well, what can I say? After having visited the Museum I felt I had to take the time to leave a comment. First of all I must say that the drive to the Museum is very tranquil and picturesque. Easy to get to and on arrival found that the parking is well catered for. Before venturing into the Museum itself I decided to visit the café/restaurant and was served with possibly the best coffee I had tasted in a long time. There was a good variety of food available although I just had a scone which was I may add very nice. (In fact I had another).There are various pictures, original tools etc decorating the room and kept me occupied while enjoying my coffee. The staff were very friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful when asked about various artifacts in the room. Heather, the Manager, although obviously busy tending to other visitors as well as organising her staff had taken time out to explain some history of the mine to a few of us. I didn’t know what to expect on the tour but was not disappointed. Tony was our guide and after getting us all kitted out with hard hats and explaining the health & safety aspects, we were taken into the mine and treated to a journey back in time. We then went to visit the cottages and again Tony had taken time to transport us through the various years explaining in great detail what the miners and families were subjected to. Thoroughly enjoyed my day and would like to thank Heather and her team for making this possible. Will definitely be recommending to others and certainly worth another visit.
