Rich in history and with so much to see and discover here, as we take a fascinating look back into the past. One and a half miles of stunning woodland, bewitching lakes and sparkling streams interlaced with historical buildings. Including what remains of a dramatic Grade 1 listed ruined Abbey, built in 1132, abundant with Welsh history. The museum is a multi-faceted jewel consisting of both Tudor and Victorian farmhouses, factories from the industrial revolution including cotton mills and copper and brass works. Indeed the industrial footprints are all over this wonderful attraction, and years of painstaking effort has been made to bring all these different important elements of the past together for us to enjoy. With plenty of fun activities for the younger visitors and a café providing hot,fresh tasty food, it makes a brilliant day out.
