The Museum is an independent registered charity. We receive no regular public funding and rely on visitor and shop income to sustain 250 years of industrial heritage – in the place where it was made. It’s been tough closing the doors just as we enter the busy Spring season, with a loss of £44,000, putting this magnificent inheritance in jeopardy.
