The Winding House

The WInding House is the museum for Caerphilly County Borough.

The Winding House Museum is a bold, glass-fronted structure that has been constructed around the former Elliot Colliery winding house. The museum houses a range of attractions and exhibitions, with the centrepiece being a magnificent grade 2* listed winding engine that was used to transport the miners up and down the lift shafts.

As well as boasting attractions for visitors, the Winding House also offers a programme of educational activities for school children. With an onsite, fully equipped research room and varied collection of local artifacts, the Winding House is the perfect place for visitors to explore the past, learn new skills and meet new people.
