Suitable for all ages and great variety of options. Can find yourself going round in circles but someone will help out. Industrial heritage all way back to Bronze Age. Great views from the edge

We are NT members so parking is free. Lovely walks around here with some marked coloured paths to follow. The kids loved trying to find the next marker. Some shallow caves for the kids to look in. Even if a light shower appears the canopy...More

It's not far (1 hour) from city so certainly convenient if you have a car. The place seemed to be popular among locals, especially dog lovers as the entrance has been gathered by many dog owners exchanging information. Once you are deep inside the trail,...More

Hi. This is gradual incline, with some steeper areas. Would guess that you would need to base your decision on how much stress your friend would be under. Is it physical or breathing difficulties? Not good for wheelchairs.

There are Iron Gates at the entrance to one of the mines, the one at the top of the ridge called Stormy Point, looks like a long crack in the floor if you jump down you can see the Iron Gates.
