Alderley Edge Mine

Children had an opportunity to visit Alderley Edge Mines a few days ago, were mined from Bronze age until early 20 th Century.

At Alderley Edge , the main products were copper and lead with, later cobalt. It was an amazing experience to the kids to see the mines, different types of copper, how can you differentiate from the colour. A series of steps are normally required to obtain a finished product ; exploring,developing,extracting and processing. It was fun for the children to wear headlights, torches and clothings to explore the mine , deep, dark and slippery at times. Many Home Ed children were there accompanied with their parents.
