The actual Heritage Centre is closed due to cutbacks. We had a guided tour round the Ironworks though and that was really interesting. They need plenty of support to keep going so do go !!

Its set in a victorian primay school, so just 4 rooms of industrial history. Mining and steel history mostly. Its too small to make a special trip but that also means its free. Theres a small kids park so with that you can spend an hour here if you have small kids.

They work very hard at this museum, it's always fun - great for kids too! Not just for adults - the old school desks and display is always a hit for the little ones (and not so little!)
