An opportunity to see two distinct areas of our country’s rich historical heritage from the medieval Monastic life to the hardships of working in a Victorian needles mill in the Industrial revolution. Most of the original Victorian water powered mill machinery remains and hopefully they will have the water mill working for us. The tour will start at 10:00 with hot drink and cake on arrival. The group will be split due to size and each will have a tour guide to see how needles are made with time to spend looking at the needles exhibition and the Bordesley Abbey visitor centre which is adjacent to the site. Dinner will be taken around 1:00 at the nearby Beefeater. The museum is around 33 miles from Sutton and car sharing will be arranged nearer the date. The cost will be approximately £8.00 excluding lunch which will be paid for on an individual basis directly to the Beefeater.
