Experience how many generations of miners removed the ore over the centuries and the tools they used. Explore the caverns they created and beautiful ochre colours staining the rock

Explore 10 caverns with displays throughout and descend around 31m (100ft) underground.

The Ochre Man – STIK

We are pleased to have completely revealed The Ochre Man – painted by STIK! We have now released his leg that had previously been hidden from view. The Ochre Man is a modern take on the very ancient art of cave painting. The style is undoubtedly modern yet has been completed using just red ochre pigment from the Caves. No material was removed or brought in to the Caves to make this stunning painting.
