Join us on a special mine tour at 1pm on Christmas Eve.

Each Christmas Eve we follow the old miners’ tradition of leaving a lit candle in Temple Mine. The miners hoped that this would appease the Knockers – the spirits in the mine – and bring good luck for the following year. 

To book places on this unique tour ‘phone 01629 583834. It is the same price as our ordinary tours but our guides will also tell you about some of the other superstitions the miners had.
