  • Make sure you stop for a bit of local history. Needles and fishing tackle were the lifeblood of Redditch, whether you're local or a visitor there is plenty to learn. Keep an eye out for Henry the mill...  more »
  • The needle museum is where Redditch started. Here you get to witness the birth of what has now become one of the best towns in the country, let alone the Midlands!

  • 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.
