Visited the heritage centre which is next door to the narrow gauge light railway. Inside is the cafe and museum. The museum is free to enter but donations are accepted. Once inside the story of mining is told which to me was very moving story as my grandparents were miners in Derbyshire. It gave me an insight how the lived and worked. Along with mining the production of Bricks were shown and different types displayed. A Great display of how people worked decades ago.

Great collection in museum covering not just mining but brick making, canals and lots of other local history. The displays on mining accidents was particularly poignant but fascinating. Museum is free to enter but worth making a donation to support the team running it who are doing a great job. Good cafe with covered seating area out the front. Inside seating areas closed due to COVID. No mine tours currently in operation unfortunately.
