Excellent little museum spotlighting Broseley's clay pipe-making dynasty. The strictures of health and safety zealots restrict factory visitors to guided tours. Our guide, Tim, did a good job of skating through several centuries of history. Two short films, depicting the manufacturing process and several company...More

The car park is very small and the museum not much bigger. Also it is very expensive and would have cost the whole family £50 to get in. We could go to Blackpool for that.

Pity that the state of the building means you can only see around on a tour but well worth it. It means that you actually see where the people worked and how the pipes used to be made. Lots of interesting information given on the...More
