Also available are above ground self guided walks. If not going underground you may purchase a mine history booklet from the mine office which tells you the above ground story as well as some geology and information about points of interest along the path. The path leads you around the top of the main shaft, along the slag heap and past the places where buildings once were. Combined with the underground tour it gives you a thorough understanding of how the mine and the town worked.
