Recently voted a “Top 10 Valleys Essential”, the Winding House museum in New Tredegar offers an inspiring day out – and a warm Valleys welcome! Its attractions include a fascinating, hands-on exhibition on the hidden history of Caerphilly County Borough. From Romans to Revolutions, Castles to Cavaliers, the Iron Age to Iron Works - there’s lots to see, do and explore!
Our new exhibition (opens Easter, 2012), The Titanic, the Mill and the Signal: Artie Moore and Titanic’s SOS, explores some intriguing local links to the famous ship in this 100th anniversary year of her sinking.
The Winding House is built on the site of the former Elliot Colliery and the museum’s centre-piece is the original Victorian winding engine. This remarkable machinery is maintained by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers and is run on special event days and Bank Holidays. It may also be run for special interest groups by prior arrangement.
Our Coffee Shop offers delicious, traditional cakes, teas and coffees while high quality souvenirs, traditional toys, crafts, jewellery and books are available from the Gift Shop.
