Clearwell Caves!!

Our recent visit to Clearwell Caves was an exciting underground experience.  Alex persuaded us to go and visit it after he is been there with a school trip.   Clearwell Caves at Forest of Dean is an ancient iron mine, which is still mined today, for Ochre, that is used for paint pigments.   It is a mysterious and atmospheric place truly a journey back in time and we know that it was used for filming episodes of Dr Who and Merlin (which Alex watch fondly).

I am sure a day out to visit and explore the old mines and caves can be an exciting adventure to everyone.
