This hidden little gem is run by volunteers, so only some of the buildings are open. Nevertheless, its full of restored antiques and buildings. cute and informative

Enjoy a walk through the past in this historic mining village.

This would be our third stopover here, over the last 20+ years.

Why? It deserves a visit due to the commitment of not only the local community, but the local volunteer's that keep this memory alive.

Without them, it would be another part of a history lost.

How can you help?

Purchase the train ticket and enjoy a trip around the property.

Spend a little money in the café and relish the great scones with jam & cream.

Before leaving, why not purchase a souvenir at the shop?

A most interesting walk through this recreated village of coal mining times. Pity all the buildings were closed but signs to read on the ouside of the various buildings were most interesting

This place is awesome and I can’t believe it is FREE!! Everyone should stop here (and add a donation if possible) as it is like stepping back in time and seeing the world as it once was.
Spend some time in the town for lunch or dinner and head on down for some history.

Well presented heritage buildings saved from around the area. Good signage and information boards. Some buildings closed due to covid but we still enjoyed our visit. Good for all ages and surprisingly FREE. A donation box on the way out showed many people thought this worth a donation including us.

I was disappointed. The open air museum had a very unloved aura about it. The buildings were dilapidated and all were locked so we were not able to see inside.

Great educational place for adults and children. Lots to see and do, we had lots of fun. It's quiet hilly so was a bit of a workout pushing a pram and some of the buildings didn't have suitable access for a pram.

We stopped in not sure what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised, the site is much bigger than we expected, was well maintained and spotless clean. We spent a couple of hours exploring the village and meeting the volunteers who operate the park. As an added bonus entry is free. Well worth a visit, allow a couple of hours to take it all in.
