Industrial Heritage

Nottingham Industrial Museum

Set in the stable block of Wollaton Hall, Nottingham Industrial Museum is a volunteer run museum open every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday. On display are artefacts based around textiles, transport, communications, mining and steam.

Papplewick Pumping Station

One of the finest working Victorian water pumping stations in Britain. The site has undergone extensive restoration and once again stands proud as a spectacular example of Victorian craftsmanship.

Bestwood Winding Engine House

Set in the tranquil grounds of Bestwood Country park the winding engine house is a beautifully restored piece of our Victorian and mining heritage. Take the glass sided lift to learn more about how the engine worked and what life was like for a miner.

Interested in Mills, then why not visit:

Greens Mill Windmill

This is a working windmill that produces its own organic flour. You can see how the flour is made by climbing to the different levels of the windmill.

Tuxford Windmill

Great to take a guided tour and if the wind is right, you’ll see the sails turning.

The Framework Knitters Museum

If you fancy trying your hand at knitting on a 19th century sock machine, then why not visit Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum. 

Walk around to see how a local Victorian community lived and worked, watch live demonstrations of their machines and see a collection of hosiery spanning 200 years.


Visit one of our many museums around Nottinghamshire, where you'll be able to take a step back in time into the counties history.
