The institute was built for the local ironstone miners by the Pease family, they were Quakers with a temperance policy, so no alcohol was available until 1925 after the mine closed.

It opened on August 5th 1876 and offered a reading room, library, billiard, smoking room and a Quoits pitch. Subscription was one shilling per quarter.

Some interesting photos of the original can be found on the Communigate site
