Discover our industrial history at the heritage centre
Elsecar Heritage Centre.

HISTORY buffs can get up close to examples of past industry at a popular visitor attraction.

People can visit the 1795 New Colliery at the Elsecar Heritage Centre seven days a week.

On open days throughout the year they can see demonstrations of the Newcomen engine — built at the direction of Earl Fitzwilliam and the oldest steam engine still in its original location anywhere — at noon, 1pm and 2pm.

The centre is open from 11am to 3pm.

Elsecar Heritage Centre is on Wath Road, Elsecar.
