Prestongrange is a free open-air museum with lovely café and exhibitions. Explore using the information boards, audio tour, outdoor games and family activity trails or take a guided tour with one of our knowledgeable members of staff and discover the history of Prestongrange spanning over 800 years. A harbour, glass works, pottery, colliery and brickworks have all left their marks on the landscape. Cradled by woodland with views out over the Forth the site is now a haven for wildlife.
At one time, this area was a successful and globally-connected industrial complex, manufacturing bricks, clay pipes, soap, fine pottery, chemicals, beer and even glass. In the 19th Century, ships from the Baltic traded rock salt for coal and other items here.
We will be providing free guided tours at 12.15pm and 2.15pm both days.
