We are the last remaining 19th Century water powered edge tool manufacturer with tools in working order. Come and see a massive 3/4 tonne tilt hammer in operation, a 90lb drop hammer, shears which can cut hot metal over two inches in diameter and three water wheels which operate it all. From 11.15 to 16.15 there are talks and demonstrations of this machinery which are fun for all the family no matter your knowledge base.
We also have a tearoom on site serving drinks and snacks and a small shop with many known and loved National Trust products available.
