Fundraising in the 1990's up to 2005 when the Mines Museum recieved the English Heritage Grant for further improvements

September 21, 1996




During the 1990’s the Group took on a major upgrade of the building, with grants from English Heritage and the National Lottery. This included re roofing, reinserting the upper floor and stairs, installing a lift and facilities for the disabled and generally bringing the building up to modern standards. The Museum held one of the country’s largest collections of lead mining artifacts and was of national importance.
