Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum

The Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum was founded in 1983 by a group of volunteers acutely aware that the remains of the ironstone mining industry, which had once formed the basis of Cleveland’s growth & prosperity, were rapidly being lost, forgotten or destroyed. As a result they set out to celebrate the heritage of that industry by the preservation, conservation and display of artifacts, photographs and documents relating to it.
