Haig Mining Museum, Whitehaven, Cumbria
Haig Pit Cumbria's last deep coal mine, with workings up to four miles out beneath the Solway Firth, finally closed in March 1986. It is now part of the Haig Mining Museum complex situated high on the Whitehaven cliffs just yards from the Cumbria Coastal Way. There's a superb steam winding engine which has been restored by a group of volunteers.
