Go with the 'flow' at The Argory and enjoy a fun family day out . Our 'Follow the Flow' family trail will power up your next family adventure as you uncover the ways that water fuelled the life of this estate.

'Follow the Flow' Water Trail

Nestled on the banks of the River Blackwater, the ‘Follow The Flow Water Trail' reveals the wonderful ways in which water powered the life of the estate. See the washboard and mangle that kept clothes clean and discover how the bowstring design of Bond’s bridge, built in 1890, was an important connection for easy access to the estate. Children are sure to be impressed when they learn that a donkey helped operate the pump which piped water from the river to the big house.
