Be amazed at the authentic sights, sounds and smells of the last steam-driven Victorian brickworks in the UK. Make your own brick, get close to the massive brick making machines and see how the men used to run 15 miles a day in the big drying sheds. Special steam-up Sundays are held once a month from April through to November where you can see the machinery all working.
