The Common Room welcomes visitors to explore the history of The North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers!
About this event
Join The Common Room and the Newcastle City Guides for a unique tour of Neville Hall (formerly known to many as the Mining Institute). The building has been the home to The North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers since 1872, a membership organisation affiliated with some of the 19th century’s most eminent engineers. Inside the building lies centuries of history relating to the Great North Coalfield, full of tales of engineering excellence and innovation.
