We are now on a proper film location website: Location Works
The photo shows how the old site can really work well when it comes to photo shoots. Now we have tidied up there are many more places in the old buildings that can be used. The motorbike is in one of the kiln chambers. If you are interested in using the museum either for photo shoots or filming please check us out on https://www.locationworks.com/
We are fundraising !
The New Foundations Project
Please can you help us restore our amazing Grade II* listed drying sheds. As you can see they are in a very poor state and desperately need rescuing.
We aim to create a Community Business Hub. Shed 1 will be mainly offices for small/medium enterprises and Shed 2 will have a glazed atrium space for exhibitions and to hire out.
The income from the rent will keep the only complete Victorian brickworks left in the UK fit for the future.
The museum has raised half the sum needed for the first phase but needs matched funding of £40,000 - can you help?
Any sum, no matter how small, would be really useful. You can use the Paypal button below to donate (you don't have to be a subscriber) or send us a cheque using the contact details.
Thanks for your help.
