CANCELLED - South Gloucestershire Mines Research Group Open Day
Oldwood Pit, Rangeworthy
Unfortunately we have had to cancel the Heritage Open Days at Oldwood Pits coal mine site as we could not get enough volunteers to safely staff them.
2:30pm to 5:00pm (also 11am-3.30pm Sunday 16th)
Explore the site of the coal mine and associated workings, mine office, mining artefacts and displays. Also pit shaft and drift mine entrance (both of these as part of guided tour only). There is nothing accessible underground, due to flooding as a result of local underground water level.
There is limited wheelchair access due to the nature of the site with rough ground, steps and steep slopes. Sensible shoes / boots advised.
These Open Days are part of the National Heritage Open Days.
