Bringing the Pit to Life

Bringing the Pit to Life

This weekend will highlight our newly restored Racecourse Colliery which tells the important story of coal mining at the heart of industrialisation in the Black Country. Without coal, there would have been no steam power – the power behind the Industrial Revolution and the agent of social and economic change which helped create the world we live in today.

Join us and the Highley Brass Band for the opening launch of the Racecourse Colliery on Fri 30 Mar.

Throughout the whole weekend enjoy a tour of the restoration project and see our boilers and colliery winders in action.

Don’t forget that all full priced day tickets are valid for an UnChained Annual Pass, giving you 12 months’ unlimited daytime visits for free!
