Industrial Heritage In Action

This photo gallery shows some of the tin processing machinery that can be seen at Tolgus Mill. The equipment is housed in a series of disjointed corrugated iron buildings which, due both to their age and the “Heath Robinson” method of construction, provide a unique atmosphere. We run several items of equipment when open for visitors adding sound and movement to a memorial visit.  Older visitors tend to be spell bound by the leap into a past age and younger visitors are often stunned into silence.
