Lewarde Mining Heritage Centre

Recommended
Mined from 1931 to 1971, Delloye Colliery remains one of the major sites dedicated to mining heritage. The former pit top now houses the Mining History Centre, the largest mining museum in France. Visits start by going down shaft no 2 (helmets on) and into the galleries. The presentations chart the evolution of mining from the 19C until the 1990s, finishing with a tour of the processing building.
