Fascinating 19th-century water-powered forge in working order.

In its heyday the foundry produced agricultural and mining hand tools. Regular demonstrations throughout the day show the three waterwheels driving the huge tilt hammer and grindstone.

Due to essential maintenance the machinery will not be in operation after 30 September 2005. The foundry bulding and garden will remain open as usual and guided tours will be extended to explain the conservation work being done.

Disabled: Building: 4 steps to entrance with handrail. Ground floor has uneven floors. 12 external stone steps to other floors. WCs: Adapted WC in shop. Shop: Level entrance. Refreshments: Level entrance.
