- Washington ‘F’ Pit’s magnificent Victorian steam engine, engine house and headgear are preserved to mark the town’s coalmining heritage that reaches back over 250 years. The industrial monument is the last of its type in the North East. Visitors will be able to discover what life was like for miners in the region and listen to tales of workers travelling down into the pits. Staff will also be on hand to operate the giant engine that once took pitmen to the coal face and brought coal to the surface.
