Listing Details

There are so many things to see and do at Pooley Country Park. The 62.5 hectare site, one third of which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, contains several pools caused by mining subsidence, woodland habitats and is situated on the Coventry Canal.

Take a stroll along the footpath used by miners as long ago as 1846 and visit the tea room during the course of your relaxing and enjoyable visit. A brilliant play area was opened to the public in March 2006, thanks to generous funding from Landfill Tax Credits, the Market Towns Initiative and Advantage West Midlands.

The Pooley Hall Colliery became the North Warwickshire Colliery in 1951 when the mine workings from Alvecote, Amington and Pooley met underground. It was the first mine to generate its own electricity (from excess steam) in the early 1920s, and also the first to have pit head baths, which were opened in 1928. Former Pooley and North Warwickshire miners have donated memorabilia, which can be seen in the Visitor Centre.
