The industrious women at Finch Foundry

Women and power exhibition, Finch Foundry, Devon

This year we are focussing on women and power and are telling the story of two Victorian women that ran the business at Finch Foundry

By introducing a catalogue combined with a natural ability in commerce, the two ladies made the business far more successful than when their husbands were running it.

We have new displays in our gallery and carpenters shop areas, telling how they made a success of the business following the death of both of their husbands.

Linked to this, there is a trail which you can do while you are here, available at reception in the shop.
