Astley Green Colliery Museum

Astley Green Colliery Museum The Astley Green Colliery Museum is a museum run by the Red Rose Steam Society in Astley near Tyldesley in Greater Manchester, England. Before becoming a museum, the site was a working colliery that produced coal from 1912 to 1970; it is now protected as a Scheduled Monument.

The museum occupies a 15acre site by the Bridgewater Canal which has the only surviving pit headgear and engine house on the Lancashire Coalfield.HistoryAstley Green Colliery exploited deep coal seams of the Manchester Coalfield underneath the peat bog known as Chat Moss, and was driven by the high demand for coal during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and the exhaustion of supplies of coal
