  • Place was a mess of old scrap. The owner has now sold off all of the accumulated junk and closed the place down. So a waste of time before it shut and a waste of a journey now.  more »

  • "I realise that steam engines aren't everyone's cup of tea" Fred Dibnah. But I enjoyed this tour which, incidentally, included a cup of tea in Fred Dibnah's kitchen.
  • This amazing day out is mandatory for any fan of Fred. The price is low for the sheer amount of things to see and learn. Drink tea in Fred's living room, sit in his shed, learn stuff you never knew, buy exclusive unreleased DVDs and best of all, Alf is sometimes there!
  • A fantastic piece of industrial heritage being maintained by a dedicated team
