  • Description

    "The Horden Heritage Centre opened its doors in August 2009 showcasing displays of local memorabilia. Our Heritage displays shows a complete history of Horden Colliery, from the origins of the local manor house, Horden Hall, built in the early 17th century​, to the creation of one of the biggest coal mines in Europe and then on to the decline of the mine.

You can also visit the Vintage Tea Room for a Cream tea and enjoy a stroll in local welfare park where we are located...."
