The Winding Engine

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 2017, the engine will run on the following dates:-

  • Saturday 26th August
  • Saturday 30th September
  • Saturday 28th October
  • Saturday 25th November

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.
