The award winning Winding House is always a popular visit, but did you know that on specific days you can watch the Engine Volunteers run the Victorian winding engine for members of the public?
If you’d like to see this, then head along to The Winding House on the 30th June, where you will also have the opportunity to chat to volunteers who maintain the engine and ask them lots of questions!
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.
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 other great events running during half term, please follow #halfterm.
