The only steam driven brickworks in the UK
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.

We are pleased to announce that we have had a successful application for funding for our cafe. This was awarded by the Fieldfare Local Action Group through their LEADER programme as this particular project met their criteria. The funding was for a new coffee machiner, coffee grinder and other kitchen equipment.
Volunteers are hard at work carrying out essential repairs to the kitchen area ready for the summer opening period. Once it is all complete our visitors will be able to enjoy a full range of coffees and cake as they take a break during their visit.
