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.

Probably the most exhausting event we have run for a while and it had a challenging start with a large powercut in the area that started around the same time the burger van arrived and plugged in - not his fault! It was also raining. However, after half an hour of crisis management the power came back on and the sun came out so all was well. By the time the first bus load of visitors - all 70 of them - arrived everything was on track.
We had tidied up one of our main under-used areas for the event and it was full of happy beer tasters and musicians from 12.00 onwards. It was lovely seeing everyone spilling out all over the site enjoying the beers, the food and the music.
Lots of learning points from our first ever beer festival but 96% said they would come to another one and how brilliant a venue it was. So, next year then?!
