Astley Green Colliery Museum Reviews
OK, not a lot going on but they try with what they have. My son found it very interesting learning about the history. more »
A brilliant place to re-encounter the past history of Lancashire. The display within the engine house brings to life the life of an old colliery. The headgear looks eerily incongruent now within a sma... more »

Absolutely amazing part of our local history. 'Cotton and coal' made this area 120 years ago. It's amazing the engine house and massive steam engine survived. Never mind the desperately in need of restoration pit head. I urge you to visit and make a donation. There is a well put together history of coal mining, and the famous Bridgewater canal network (most of which was underground ) this covers the basis of the industrial revolution; the start really. Visit. And make a donation. It's free to get in. But for the sake of history. Make a decent donation.
Historic pit head and winding engine. Great condition of engine. Nice walks along canal towpath. Pub nearby good food good beer
Fabulous place run by a band of dedicated volunteers. Lot to see, one of the biggest, use to be run by steam, winding engines, plus engines, machines, et al. A lot of our industrial history and if all their plans come to fruition as wonderful place to visit. A must visit.
Run by friendly knowledgeable volunteers, its a great place to wander about in for an hour or so. Lots of gems from the local past. Have a chat to someone there & they'll show you something interesting or tell you a great tale. Lots of things go on in the summer, in the winter it's repair, maintenance & hardcore visitors only.
Currently a great place to volunteer, trustees have tremendous plans for making this a must visit heritage destination
