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.

Raising Steam - The New Pan Mill
The Raising Steam project is closer to completion with the pan mill now turning for the first time in years. The volunteers are just making the finishing touches but it should be in action on our next steam-up day (23rd October). The exciting thing about this bit of equipment is that we can actually use it to mix clay. It isn't particularily old and it is in good condition so it should work well.
