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.

Beer and Cake
Published:13th Apr 2017 by Carolyne Haynes
At our beer festival on the 13th May we are going to be trying something new - beer and cake tasting. It isn't the most usual pairing but apparently the right cake with the right ale can set the palate tingling. For example, Chocolate Brownie, which by its nature is quite a bitter cake because of all the chocolate in it, works best with a porter or a stout; Lemon Drizzle, however, sings along with a fruity paler ale - maybe one with American hops and finally Carrot Cake (which frankly goes with everything especially the one made by our lovely cafe manager) is best eaten alongside a traditional best bitter.
We didn't know any of this a week ago but are rapidly becoming experts. Why not come along and try for yourself it should be a great event.
