  • Jolly good time had here when visiting. Good fun for kids. Wheelchair access is okay but not fantastic. Accessible toilet is adequate but not fantastic. No adult changing facilities or hoist. Audio tour provided. No braille signs offered that I recall.
  • Great Learning Experience. Great to Learn History - how the industrial revolution changed the town and Industry; And Now the past glory is faded - sadly. Wonder, why can't we revive such towns and Industry. Is Automation only the answer today ? Why can't we take a step back and see the beautiful craftsmanship they had - mind you there were no computers; no welding technology then. Salute to the volunteers who have kept this place running and guiding the visitors.
