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 nearly finished the new exhibition display for the second steam engine. It is now all in place, new paths and ramps, new interpretation boards...all we need to do next is get the engine running. We had steam going through it for the first time yesterday but the piston remained stubbornly still! More work to be done to see why and fingers crossed it isn't anything too costly.
