Blue John Cavern Minecart by munki-boy

Blue John Cavern

The spectacular Blue John Cavern is famous as the place where the mineral Blue John was found and mined, a form of Flourite which can be seen in various places throughout the cavern.

The Blue John Cavern is open to the public for short walking tours but the cave itself, part of a large system of potholes, enlarged by historic mining activity is much larger.

A good number of the old mining equipment is on display along the tour including old mine carts together with remnants of the early days of the “show cave”.
