Clearwell Caves
 

Clearwell Caves, a uniquely special home to so many amazing things!
Spot the Pumpkins 20th – 31st October


An extensive natural cave system, set in a beautiful valley. Walk through the show-caves and mine workings with exciting displays throughout. Remarkably, Clearwell Caves have produced artists’ pigment for over 4,500 years and ochre pigments are still mined here today. You see our ochre workshop where pigment is still produced. Iron ore was mined here for over 2,000 years, until 1945; making Clearwell Caves one of the most complex and ancient mine systems in Britain. Going underground here is a great experience for all the family and an essential part of any visit to the Forest of Dean.
