Friday 16/September - 2015. Woodhorn Museum, Ashington, Northumberland, UK - 2015.
Myself and friends Scona & Ray visited this fantastic Colliery Museum, at Ashington, Northumberland, UK.
We spent around 3 hours here walking around, looking at the original buildings of this former colliery. Also within the museum building there was some fantastic exhibits to see, all of interest, which depicts the lives of coal mine workers, over the years.
The buildings are protected with a listed status & the location is recognised as a Scheduled Ancient Monument as it is the most well preserved example of a late 19th- to early 20th-century colliery in the North Eastern of England.
While we were there, we viewed the Weeping Window, now showing at Woodhorn Museum in Ashington, Northumberland. And is the first venue anywhere in the world to host Weeping Window outside London.
***The Time We Spent At Woodhorn Colliery Museum, Was Well Worth The Visit & Highly Recommended.***
