An exciting year ahead at Finch Foundry

The summerhouse, Finch Foundry, Devon

A vibrant start to the year at Finch in more ways than one ...


  • A Rag Rug making workshop on Friday 30 March - a great session which will help you get to grips with this ancient skill (prices vary but range from £1.50 - £3.00).
  • This kicks off our Easter celebrations, which will run over the weekend from Good Friday to Easter Monday. You’ll be able to follow a trail to gain a chocolate prize at the end (£2 per trail).
  • On Saturday 28 April we'll have our usual classic car show with all sorts of interesting, rare and beautiful classics on show.
  • The annual Motorcycle show will be in the car park behind the foundry on 26 May.

Women in water-power

This summer, we'll be celebrating the lives of Emlin and Rebecca Finch, who re-ignited the business in the 19th century after years of financial turmoil. If you have any stories of any other local trail blazers, we'd love to hear from you.


If you’re a returning visitor or spring-bulb enthusiast, it'll be worth popping down as we’ve planted plenty of bulbs this winter.  Once the sun rears its head, there'll be a flowery spring display to enjoy.
