The Coalface

Home | About | The Coalface

We are extremely excited about the development of a new building at the Crawick Multiverse, The Coalface will be the hub of our operations, and we are looking forward to being permanently based on site.

Our new building will be the place to purchase tickets and refreshments, during our opening hours, and staff will be on hand to provide information about the site. There will also be facilities including toilets, changing areas and exhibition space which will all enhance our visitors experience at the Crawick Multiverse.

We think the name is very fitting. Not only does it remind us of the sites coal mining heritage, but as the office and place from where The Crawick Multiverse Trust will operate, we will now be working at ‘The Coalface’!

The original ticket office and staff office/store on site

27th July 2020

Work starts on site to prepare the area for the new building. Please note the site will be temporarily closed to visitors during the ground works and we will reopen as soon as possible.

1st August 2020

The initial works have begun on the site for our new building and the area has been secured, so we are open for visitors again.

Please take care when visiting during the week when there may be site workers and machinery around the car park area.

Please note, we may need to temporarily close at short notice over the next few weeks when large machinery comes on site. Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates.

26th September 2020

There has been a lot of progress both on and off site since our last update. Sam Templeton Building Contractors have almost completed the groundworks, creating a solid base for our our new building.

We’ve also been working closely with Echo Living on the final fixtures and finishes for the building which is partly being manufactured in modular parts at their workshop in Clarebrand, Castle Douglas.

Construction of the building itself will begin on site from 28th September 2020, with the steel framework arriving. Please note due to the work area being next to our access road and carpark, we may need to close access to the site for cars for short periods while deliveries are made, and large vehicles and materials are moved around the site.

The large building modules are due to arrive on Wednesday 21st October. We will need to close the site completely on that day due to the large vehicles and crane operations.

We apologise for any inconvenience to visitors at this time, and for short notice on temporary closures, however we feel it is better to do this than close the site completely for the duration of the work. We will continue to keep you updated via our website and social media pages.

Our new building has been made possible by funding from the above organisations
