Rookery Black Marble (Ashford Black Marble) Limestone Mine (United Kingdom)


This mine is on the outscirts of ashford in the water,a key is needed to enter and this can be done by contacting DCA in advance of a trip. The entrence is in the woods, a short walk away from the road, when you get a key you should have a bit of paper to go with it to say were it is located and also there are a few minor rules about going into the mine. you wont get the key in the post bt you will get a note thatyou hand into the village shop in exchange for the key. Its is a nice mine, its quite small, but there is plenty of pretties in there but not much in the way of artifacts, there are some areas that have been taped that it states in the rules not to enter, this is normally because it is either unsafe or simply to pretect the pretties on the floor.
