On Wednesday 5th July 2023 we held our first brainstorming session of ideas for the new museum of mining and quarrying. This brought together teams from the Museum, the Peak District Mines Historical Society, the Institute of Quarrying and the National Stone Centre. Lots of ideas were generated fueled by plenty of cake and cups of tea. There will be more sessions to come including ones where we hope to hear from local residents and museum visitors.
