On the site of the former Haig Pit in Whitehaven, which closed in 1986, the winding engine house and headgear are being restored to their former glory and is now open as the Haig Colliery Mining Museum.
Coal mining dates back to the 13th Century when the monks from St Bees Abbey supervised the opening of coal mines at Arrowthwaite. This long history ended in March 1986, when Haig Pit, Cumbria's last deep coal mine, finally closed.
The winding house has been undergoing restoration since early in 1994 by a group of local volunteers. When the pit closed, many of the buildings were demolished, and the area landscaped to form the Haig Enterprise Park. Only the winding engine house and headgear remained. The building is being restored to its former glory, along with two unique Bever-Dorling steam winding engines.
It is hoped that a railway can be constructed using a steam locomotive to ferry tourists part of the way from The Beacon to the Museum. The museum has on loan a diesel Hunslet Locomotive from Threlkeld Mining Museum.

The café, set beside the courtyard offers many perspectives. Inside the converted stables snug stalls cater for up to six persons at a time whilst the airy glass covered courtyard feels like being outside. We even have balcony tables, which is a wonderful place for people watching or for keeping an eye on the famous Rum Story kinetic clock.
However, a choice of seating would not be enough on its own. We are proud that our café's many loyal regulars return time after time for our home baking and tasty meals, or just for a cup of coffee in the friendly atmosphere.
