  • Amazingly gorgeous little piece of heaven. Volunteers run the railway (think big kids) and they offer rides to people who come to see the forge and leave a donation. Always a gorgeous day out.
  • Great industrial machinery museum...more for the engineering enthusiast perhaps, they run the engines on Sundays.....me, I'm here on an organised ghost hunt!
  • wortley top forge is a fantastic location for ghost hunting and the buildings are amazing and also the history with regarding the location
  • Really interesting place for a visit. I help run a local photography club and they gave us a private tour, very informative and really warm and friendly volunteers. Definitely worth a visit.
  • A delightful little gem nestled in a beautiful little valley. The restoration work has been sympathetically done and the volunteers are knowledgable and friendly. Just be aware that refreshments aren't really available on site so make sure you take your own.
