We visited in pouring rain, staff really interesting and tour very good. It was very interesting to learn about the old skills which are still used today. Surprised that they made dolls limbs as well.

Having squeezed down some tiny lanes, driven around the houses and finally arriving we found that the Pipeworks only opened a couple of days in high summer. It would have helped if this was printed in the advertising brochure.
