Snibston

 
 
 
 


Snibston is a 40ha site created by Leicestershire County Council on the former Snibston Mine site, near Coalville.  Colliery buildings, a loco shed and a large exhibition hall form one part of the site.  The Discovery Park includes Science Play and a museum of Leicestershire industry, while a colliery trail shows the pit as it was when in operation.

Elsewhere, a nature reserve and fishing lakes have been created at the Grange.  You can follow two separate trails around the whole site - a sculpture trail with pieces made from natural materials, and a nature trail with woodland, meadow, marshland and hedgerows. Over 30 specimen trees are labelled.

Dogs allowed in the country park only.

Battledress
14 June 2014 to 01 May 2015

Commemorating the Centenary of the First World War, Battledress explores the impact of the 1914 - 18 War on Women's fashion. Drawn from the Museum's historic fashion collection the exhibition will contrast the elaborate and restricting fashions of the Edwardian period with the more practical styles that were created as a result of the War and the revolution in fashion that followed during the 1920s. Opening hours.
