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.

We went looking for the pipeworks not knowing if the pipes where metal, clay, Plastic when we arrived it didn't look much of interest and we thought the entry charges where over the top and the staff looked bored
