Kelly welcomes new members, both ladies and men, the mine site is a unique and tranquil setting in a pristine wood, with bluebells, orchids, primroses in season, plus a gem of a small reservoir which attracts wildlife. There is of course the working machinery forming the processing plant and the mine itself. Much is available for members to enjoy and far exceeds that on display to casual visitors and open days. As a member you can visit on Wednesdays and Sundays and just wander. Plus you will receive six informative newsletters full of historical information, the electronic version has many colour photographs.

What we really would like is for you to swell our active member ranks, skills are not a necessity, just a willingness to enjoy Kelly and actively participate. You may wish to just help care for the site and promote flora and fauna, or perhaps act as guide for the many small organised groups of visitors. If you enjoy getting your hands dirty there is machinery operation and maintenance, much of which is historically valuable, and requires an attitude of loving and tender care. We do have an active underground working group which is stabilising adits on the hillside and the mine shaft. This is a unique experience as underground workings are not open to visiting public, however extra insurance is required.

So, if you are looking for something different and a rewarding activity, for both young and recently retired, bringing Kelly mine back to the last days of its working commercial life, then join us.
