Pocket Guide: Manchester Astley Green Colliery Museum Hotels

Anyone interested in England's industrial heritage need only visit Manchester to see its legacy. This great city was built on industry and trade, in the 18th and 19th centuries in particular, and the landscape of canals, warehouses and mills bears witness to those times. Book in to a Manchester hotel or guesthouse, of which there are very many in this region, and take some time to explore the city's fine museums and art galleries, civic buildings and historic canals. They'll tell you an awful lot about how life was lived here in the old days, when heavy machinery roared and the pits were in full operation. The Astley Green Colliery Museum, for instance, is full of interest and is also fun for all ages.

Manchester Hotels for Astley Green Colliery Museum

Astley Green village lies on the very edge of Chat Moss. This area used to be full of working collieries, and it's only because of determined action by Lancashire County Council that this one was saved from demolition and has been turned into a fascinating open-air museum. The colliery was fortunate in possessing a unique twin tandem steam winding engine; otherwise it would have been for the chop like all the others in the area! The engine house and headgear at the Astley Green Colliery are the only ones of their kind left in the county and are now listed buildings. Take a day out from your nearby Manchester hotel and you'll easily find the museum and have a wonderful and informative day here, delving into the area's recent coalmining past.

A Day at Astley Green Colliery Museum with Manchester Hotels

The museum covers 15 acres and is close to the famous Bridgewater Canal. As the land all around is so flat, the 98-foot tall headgear is an iconic feature of the landscape and is a fitting reminder of the region's proud industrial heritage. Come along from your Manchester hotel and you'll find plenty of other interesting exhibits to enjoy. These include a collection of colliery locomotives which is the biggest in the UK and is extremely evocative of the old coalmining days which have gone forever.
