Built in a typical Miners Welfare Hall style in 1933/34. The Welfare Institute building was financed by a deduction of 6d a week from the pay packets of the miners at the local collieries.

The Welfare Institute was equipped with a RCA sound system. The old Welfare Institute was later demolished and a new community centre was built on the site, which opened in 2002.
