  • Forge Mill Museum is an important centre of the history of the Redditch area. As well as the Needle Museum it also includes the visitor centre for the important Bordesley Abbey ruins. Although it is not fully appreciated locally it is an important international heritage site with the ONLY working water powered scouring mill in the world and the EARLIEST evidence of a water powered medieval metal working mill found in the UK.
