Blists Hill: Incline Plane, Miner's Walk

Incline Plane and Miner's Walk are part of the southern end of the museum grounds. As you pass the church two mine shafts are on the right, and then the Miner's Path continues on into the woods. The mine entrance is a couple of hundred yards further along that path.

How to get here from Blists Hill: Forest:

»

Walk: Walk up the forest path back to The Green, then turn right and walk past the school and then the church. This brings you to Incline Plane. The small shaft is on the right; continue along the path up the hill to find the mine entrance. +
