HLF evaluation plan consultancy project
Client: Leicestershire County Council
Snibston Museum was a multi-award winning visitor attraction in north west Leicestershire, located on the former Snibston Colliery which closed in 1983 having run for 150 years. In 1992 an industrial heritage museum and country park were opened on the site by the new owners Leicestershire County Council. A number of the colliery buildings are Scheduled Ancient Monuments and are listed on the Heritage at Risk Register (English Heritage July 2008).
