Amberley Museum & Heritage Centre is a museum at Amberley, near Arundel in West Sussex, England.
The museum was founded in 1979 by the Southern Industrial History Centre Trust and has previously been known as the Amberley Working Museum, Amberley Chalk Pits Museum or plain Amberley Museum.
The museum is a registered charity and has the support of an active Friends organisation.
The museum is sited in a former chalk quarry where the chalk was converted into lime for use in mortar and cement, and remaining on site are several kilns, including a De Witt set, and associated buildings including offices, bagging shed and locomotive shed. (source Wikipedia)
Also to be seen is the quarry tunnel (which appeared as Mainstrike Mine in the James Bond film A View to a Kill).
The interiors of the Main Strike Mine were filmed on the 007 soundstage, which in 1984, during pre-production of A View to a Kill, accidentally burnt to the ground. The enormous steel structure melted in the intense heat caused by the explosion of a gas canister during a lunch break on Ridley Scott’s film, Legend. It was rebuilt four months later, with construction completing just in time for filming A View to a Kill's mine-flooding finale. (source jamesbond.wikia.com)
