Easter fun at the foundry

Easter hunt fun

Step back in time and you'll find out about the origins of England's last working water-powered forge.

This Easter join the Cadbury bunny on his egg hunt around the delightful cottage garden behind the Foundry.  There is a chocolate treat for all completed trails. 

Enjoy one of the talks in the Foundry and hear about the Foundry’s varied history including how it produced 400 tools in a day and the history behind the family who ran the business.   In the carpenters workshop there are displays of the different tools produced at the Foundry for the mining, clay and farming industry.  For children there is information in the gallery about how much you would have earned and the type of clothes you would have worn.
