Great place to visit. Steam punk & Victoria day was amazing. Well done to all involved.
Great day out. Very interesting lots to see especially when the engines are producing steam. Good for all ages; lots for children to interact with.
We visited to take part in mosiac coaster making. We had a lovely afternoon. My boys aged 10 & 6 enjoyed finding the stamps and seeing all the old machinery. They've tried to include lots of hands on stuff for kids. The volunteers were all really enthusiastic and friendly too. We thoroughly enjoyed making the mosaic coasters and even made our own bricks too. The cafe was clean and pleasant. Restricted menu but sandwiches were very tasty. All in all a lovely afternoon.
Great place if you find industrial heritage interesting. I went when there was a steam event and steampunk stalls and had it not been for those, half an hour would have been sufficient for a look round. Well laid out, interesting displays, and I really enjoyed the afternoon, though probably wouldn't have had such a good time without the extra things going on.
We went for the Craft Fayre and Dog show and had a great day out. My daughter is 6 and wasnt too interested in the brickworks side of things. I however would like to go back and take more time. My daughter did love the old arcade, Little outdoor play area and old busses. She also won best child dog handler
Excellent attraction. It's getting better and better over the years, an ambitious master plan to refurbish Sheds 1 and 2 for £1.8 million and other minor projects. A true inspiration. There's so much more to just manufacturing bricks!
Plenty to see, we went during an event so there was lots going on, fortunately the lady on the gate was very reasonable and only charged us half because we turned up late in the afternoon on a Sunday. I'd like to go back again so it must have been interesting!!
Facinating place!! Well worth a visit if you have any interest in bricks and decorative kiln-fired roofing hardware.
What a marvelous afternoon out! As well as seeing how bricks were made, all the way from mining the clay through firing, there are some fascinating social history exhibits. Also plenty of fun activities for kids. They even have a train which was running on the day we were there.
An excellent gem of a museum. A lot of hands-on things to do for my kids, 8 and 7 years old. Also very interesting displays that go through the history and mechanics of brick making. In addition to all this, and the steam engines, and the steam railway there is a keenly priced cafe with tasty food, cakes and coffee. Bacon sandwich was very nice.
Fabulous. Steeped in history. Could easily spend an afternoon there. Best to go on a day when all machinery is cranked up.
