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 just purchased this little Shetland pony carriage to create a new play feature for the playground. We were awarded the money via a Tesco's Bags of Help grant and as the old climbing frame is getting to be on its last legs - literally - we thought we would change things around a bit.
The aim is to create a play area that is a little bit different to the normal ones. We will need a Shetland pony to stand between the shafts and plan to make one ourselves out of plywood sheet. If we can we will also turn the back of the carriage into a living wagon to match the ones that live on our site.
Other items we are looking at include simple diggers, sand pit and some kind of bucket and pulley system. We won't know exactly what until we find what we are looking for!
