Mr Monkey at the Peak District Mining Museum, 11th October

"It's very dark, but it's dry and the edges aren't sharp"

Mr Monkey scurrying through a simulation of a lead mine Mr Monkey looking at a rag and chain pump

Mr Monkey found that were a number of tunnels designed to give visitors the feel of being in a lead mine. Mr Monkey found it was easy to scurry around the narrow winding tunnels, but Mr Rik kept walking into things, or stepping on bits that weren't there. Outside the tunnels he made his humans move water about with a hand cranked rag and chain pump, used to remove water from mines.
