Pleasley Pit Trust is a charity which works to preserve and protect the Pleasley coal mine, its artifacts, and stories of the mining community. The Trust helps in the conservation of the natural habitats and wildlife that now call this place home. The building, chimney and car parks are held by The Land Trust and both the building and chimney hold Scheduled Ancient Monument status with Historic En

gland. The inside of the engine house building and its working winding wheel together with many other mining treasures have been lovingly restored over many years and are now cared for and protected by Pleasley Pit Trust. The Heritage Centre, Visitor Centre, Café and Wildlife Group are managed mostly by a dedicated team of volunteers and the Trust is a not-for-profit organisation. Our visitors have access to the Country Park (managed by Derbyshire County Council's Countryside Services) all year round with access granted to our Visitor Centre and café everyday except Tuesday. There are many special events held throughout the year which showcase this site and all it has to offer. To find out more about the history of the mine and of what a mining life was like, there are guided tours every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, including access to the Victorian Winding Houses. The winding wheel engines run for the public every 2nd Sunday of the month from March to October. For special tour bookings outside these times please contact [email protected] and for all other communications please email [email protected]
