The principle objective of The Making it Industrial Heritage Trust is to support the advancement of education through school and community projects.

The Centre is now CLOSED

It is with regret that we must inform our customers about our imminent closure. After the Easter Holidays on Friday 17th April 2015, the Discovery Centre, including Brewhouse Crafts and Cafe, will be closing its doors to the public permanently. This will also mean the end of themed Birthday parties and School trips. The Making it Industrial Heritage Trust will continue to support educational activities in new ways and would like to thank all visitors who have helped keep the Discovery Centre running over the past 17 years. We hope to have inspired the next generation of Engineers and Scientists and are proud to have taught so many children...
