ideal for a wet day with the children. Let them clock in to the factory ( cards cost 15p each) and then see life in Victorian times. Lots to see much of it working as it did in the old woollen mill days, looms, spinning beaming, or engineering or printing factories. Then there are the cars, mostly Jowetts made in Bradford, motorbikes, railway engine and memorabilia, old tram and trolley bus to see in addition to the cranes and horse drawn vehicles outside.
Our children aged 11 - 6 and all found things to excite them, especially block printing and hard carding and combing wool. They read of life in the days when children had to work in the mill and lost fingers and scalps as H&S didnt exist and how it took an act of parliament to get them to school half a day and still work the other half.
You can see mot of it in 1 - 2 hours, but could easily make a day of it (open 11 - 4 at weekends and 10 - 4 in the week except Mondays) if you read all the information and watched the videos and demonstrations.
