WCMRG New Site

Those accessing our old website for Florence Mine Heritage Centre, will have seen that they are now forwarded to this, the website of the parent organisation, West Cumbria Mines Research Group.

The reason we have withdrawn our old website, is because we have ceased to operate the Heritage Centre at Florence Mine, Egremont, due to the aspirations of ourselves and our partner at the time, Egremont Mining Co., becoming too disparate.

We have withdrawn from the site, and have temporarily re-housed our collection at Bridge End Industrial Estate Egremont.

It is our intent to discuss with partners, the possibility of amalgamating our own mining and local history content into a more widespread facility, covering other aspects of the social history of the area.
