Ashby Road, Coalville, Leicestershire, LE67 3LN.

'Leicestershire County Council closed Snibston Discovery Museum on July 31st [2015], in order to meet its savings target at a time of deepening financial pressure on the authority.'[1]. Closure has proved to be expensive, as well as ending an important link with Leicestershire's industrial past.
