Pooley Fields Heritage Centre
There is lots to see and do at Warwickshire's Country Park and first Mining Heritage Centre. The 62.5 hectare site, one third of which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, contains several pools caused by mining subsidence, woodland habitats and is situated on the Coventry Canal.
See for yourself environmental sustainability in practice, and experience how hard and dangerous the work of mining coal was for North Warwickshire miners, who relate tales captured on DVD and who have donated mining memorabilia to the Centre for you to view.
The colliery was the first to produce its own electricity (from excess steam), and the Heritage Centre has harnessed wind and solar energy to provide power to the Visitor Centre.
Take a stroll along the Miners Walk - a footpath used by miners as long ago as 1846 - and make use of the children's play area and the tea room during the course of your relaxing and enjoyable visit
