Escaping Elsecar

Careers Events

In partnership with Wentworth and Elsecar Together Arts project, our students had the opportunity to further develop their ideas around creating an ‘escape room’ experience as part of Elsecar Heritage Centre visitor attractions.

A Heritage tour of the site allowed students to explore the Newcomen Beam Engine which revolutionised mining on the site allowing water to be pumped out of the coal seam thereby furthering the fortune of the Fitzwilliam family.

After exploring the whole site students worked alongside existing escape room business owners and developed their own design plans and ideas for an escape room experience based on coal. Let’s hope to see it in reality in the future!
