Having bumped into Sean Paling, director and Senior Scientist at the Boulby Underground Laboratory the other week in a local watering hole, we briefly discussed the possibility of a visit to the facility down in the mine. 

Sean, who was with a visiting group of scientists from the U.S, including from NASA, was only too happy to extend an invitation.  Arrangements for possible dates will be made early in the New Year.  I assume that numbers are still limited per visit, and it will also be during the working week.  Once we have firmer arrangements, they will be included in the monthly notes, and at the next scheduled society meeting.
