Clearwell Caves is a working mining museum where for thousands of years ochre and iron ore have been mined. The impressive caverns are natural, but have been extended by miners to create a subterranean network to explore. This project will help visitors to understand the history of the mines and their place in the Forest by providing interactive interpretation in a variety of formats. Current mining concentrates on ochre to produce red, yellow, purple and brown powders used as artist's pigment. There is an opportunity to learn more about the process of extracting ochre as part of training for future Freeminers.
