Come and be amazed at the authentic sights, sounds and smells of the last steam-driven Victorian brickworks in the UK. Make your own brick, get close to the massive brick making machines and see how the men used to run 15 miles a day in the big drying sheds.
Special steam-up Sundays are held once a month from April through to December where you can see the machinery all working. An inexpensive family outing with lots of brick related activities for children of all ages.

We have been nominated for an award again this year. It is for the Best Small Visitor Attration in the south east and we will be either bronze, silver or gold.
It is always brilliant to get praise especially when our volunteer team work so hard. Fingers crossed it is gold but we are happy with bronze as well...it is a stiff competition and to be in the top three is fine by us!
