The Winding Engine at The Winding House, New Tredegar

27 October, 2018 @ 12:00 pm

Free Admission to The Winding House

The Winding House is built on the site of the former Elliot Colliery. The museum’s centre-piece is the original Victorian winding engine. This remarkable machinery was used to operate the cages which transported men and coal between the surface and the mine below.

Our dedicated and enthusiastic Engine Volunteers maintain and run the engine for members of the public on specific days throughout the year.

The engine runs for approximately 10-15 minutes.

In 2018, the engine will run on the following dates:-

  • October 27th
  • November 24th

Please note, the engine no longer runs on Bank Holidays.

Running the engine is dependent on the availability of our dedicated engine volunteer team. On very rare occasions, scheduled engine running times may not take place due to unforeseen circumstances. Please call us to confirm engine running times in advance of your visit.

For more information go to the Winding House website.
