Purbeck Mineral & Mining Museum

The Isle of Purbeck has a rich mineral history and once boasted a substantial network of narrow gauge lines to convey Ball clay to both rail and sea links. One of these lines was the first railway in South West England. The Purbeck Mineral and Mining Museum Project is seeking to expand its visitor and exhibition centre located at the former Norden Ball Clay Works.
