Early Haystack Boiler
The haystack boiler taken a little under 20 years later SK4114 : Snibston Discovery Park.
Originally half of it would have been encased in brick with a fire underneath it. It was found at Califat Colliery and it is hoped it will return one day.

Snibston Discovery Park
Snibston discovery park is a science museum run by Leicestershire county council. The site is open most days and has exhibits relating to the counties industrial past, present and future. There are also areas relating to fashion and science. Museum is built on the site of Snibston colliery, a large building houses the exhibits. Outside is the remains of the colliery (c.1983) which is very authentic. Sadly the colliery is on the buildings at risk register. The country park beside is part of the old tip but is has been landscaped.
