    Today is #WorldHeritageDay when the cultural heritage and history of humankind is celebrated. Here in Wanlockhead the aim of the Museum of Lead Mining is to preserve the heritage of lead mining in the area. This weekend experience our industrial heritage with a guided underground tour of Lochnell Mine, which gives the visitor a real sense of what lead mining was like for miners. Look into the homes of miners' families in the 18th and 19th centuries at Straitsteps Cottages and visit Wanlockhead Miner’s Library, the second oldest subscription library in Europe.
