Very late post!

I have meant to do this for weeks and haven't had the time. Here are some pictures from the citty knitty day time visit to
Prestongrange Industrial Heritage Museum on Saturday 23rd September!

Here are a few of us sitting in the cafe knitting or crocheting.

Prestongrange is a brilliant place to visit for both old and young. The staff are very helpful and friendly. (However I might be a tad biased as my hubby works there, but not on the weekends!)The museum is open from April till October and there is plenty to see, lots of old industrial machinery,(some fenced off due to Health and Safety), woodland walks, wide open space and a Cornish Beam Engine. The cafe has plenty of room to sit with a large window which allows plenty of natural light, just great for knitting!!! There is also a small museum of exhibits from the site in the in the cafe area.

The Cornish Beam Engine and winding gear from the pit head.

Some of the tea pots made at the Prestongrange pottery and miners lamps, just some of the exhibits in the museum.
