  • An excellent renovation of the historical Winding House and Head Stocks showing the true history of this village. Immaculate work and ongoing displays with guided tours of this villages employment mining heritage, the volunteers who have given hours of their engineering expertise to bring this winding engine back to life for all to see. Surrounded by the beautifully created countryside which incorporated the hidden slag heaps of the past of the vast site and home of Bestwood Colliery ... country side walks through the wooded areas of Bestwood Country Park.
