The trustees and volunteers of the Lancashire Mining Museum have been working hard over the past 18 months breathing new life into the site, however there is still much to do. The headgear alone is likely to cost in the region of 1 million pounds to restore and preserve and we will need significant funding to achieve all our goals. It was therefore decided that a full review of the site and its development, which is possible over the coming years should be made, to allow funding bodies to see what the site could be developed into over the next five years, with adequate funding. We believe this plan outlines the benefits the site could give to the whole community, properly managed with clear and concise goals . This will be the blueprint to work to and aspects could change as we develop but we feel this is a great starting point, to ensure we go forward with a clear understanding of where we want to get to.
Please click on the link below to see and read the full plan. It was originally designed as a two page layout which explains why maps and photographs carry over between pages.
Its 64 pages long and may take some time to load. If you want to help us achieve this vision why not consider coming down to site to volunteer. A lot of this work will be done by unpaid volunteers, working together to make the site a major heritage location for the future.
