Why should I visit Northumberlandia?
As well as the park as a whole is a huge selling point, atop Northumberlandia, fans of big machinery and engineering can look into the Shotton Surface Mine!
The creation of Northumberlandia has been taken on by the Banks Group as part of a restoration effort of the Shotton Surface Mine. The building of the attraction has provided much-needed coal for the UK’s energy generation!
The project as a whole is known as restoration first, by taking donated land from the landowner at Blagdon Estate, just opposite the Mine, the land provides a new area of the landscape for the local community to cherish while the mine is still in operation! Overall the project has amounted to over £3 Million to create this jaw-dropping attraction and was funded by the Banks Group and the Blagdon Estate.
