Enjoyed a quiet afternoon looking round the variety of shops and enjoyed a coffee in the cafe. Plenty of parking available and a good children’s play centre. Will definitely visit again.

We came here primarily for my sons Christmas gift of a 'steam train driving experience'. We were amazed to find very quaint and nostalgic surroundings with lots to do. There is a huge antiques Centre, children's play zone, tea rooms and much more. Fabulous place.

So nice quaint shops in this old industrial site. We only had a few hours so did not get chance to see everything we wanted to see, so we will be back.

They have lots of antique fairs here although it can be expensive but if they have what you want it's all good. Nice walks all around on a nice day. The cafe is lovely and good value

Most of the site has been turned over to retail shops and market stalls selling art and crafts and the like .Very interesting history with small plaques on the walls explaining rise and demise of the site.

Came at the weekend with wife and friends, had a nice leisurely walk round, perused all the little shops and had a nice sit down and coffee in one of the little tea shops. Well recommended!!
