Prestongrange Industrial Museum (United Kingdom)


Prestongrange is a site of major importance in the story of Scotland's Industrial Revolution. It was the location of a sixteenth century harbour, a seventeenth century glass works, eighteenth and nineteenth century potteries and a nineteenth/twentieth century coal mine and brick works. Remnants of these former industries can still be seen, and many of the structures are still intact including the rare Hoffman Kiln built in 1937 and the Cornish Beam Engine, unique in Scotland as it the only beam engine still on the site where it worked.
