Lancashire Mining Museum
The last surviving headgear and winding engine in the Lancashire coalfield. Coal mining and steam power exhibits and narrow gauge railway. The museum occupies some fifteen acres of the Astley Green Colliery site. To the south lies the Bridgewater Canal and Astley Moss, an important mossland site. The low-lying landscape ensures that the museum’s 98ft high lattice steel headgear can be seen for many miles, a fitting memorial to days now past. Apart from the steam winding engine and headgear the museum houses many exhibits, not least of which is the collection of 28 colliery locomotives, the largest collection of its type in the United Kingdom.
Opening Times : Tue, Thu, Sat-Sun 1330-1700 (Closed 25-26 Dec).
