Woodhorn, QEII Country Park, Ashington, Northumberland, NE63 9YF
Visitors can enter the last Victorian engine house in Northumberland and see some of the workings in action during Heritage Open Days weekend. Tours of the listed building will take place hourly on Saturday and Sunday. Visit the Welcome Desk to find out when the next available tour is during your visit. The Winding House is an historic building and is not fully accessible. Access to the winding gear demonstration involves climbing steep stairs. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. Children are welcome but must be closely supervised at all times.
This event took place in September 2013 and the entry is now archived.
Although Woodhorn is largely accessible, the Winding House is not accessible. The tour involves climbing a steep staircase.
Woodhorn is just off the A189 east of Ashington. Follow the brown and white signs to Woodhorn rather than sat nav which could lead you astray. Map link.
