Forge Mill Needle Museum description


Medium (1-150)

Weddings / Parties

Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch is an unusual and fascinating place to visit. This historic site illustrates the rich heritage of the needle and fishing tackle industries. Models and recreated scenes provide a vivid illustration of how needles were once made, and how Redditch once produced 90% of the world's needles.

On the same site, just a very short walk from Forge Mill Museum, are the ruins of Bordesley Abbey - a medieval Cistercian Abbey which has been extensively excavated. Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre, which is set in an original reconstructed 16th century barn, tells the extraordinary story of the Abbey from its development in the 12th century to its destruction in 1538 by Henry VIII during the dissolution.

Now for the first time we are able to offer the public a chance to hire the historic and beautiful grounds of the Forge Mill Needle Museum and the Bordesley Abbey Visitor centre for weddings, parties and fundraising events.
