Digital Guidebook with British Sign Language and Subtitles

ipadWe can offer visitors who are British Sign Language users a digital guidebook on iPad. You can ask to borrow one at reception. Usual admission prices apply. The guidebook has BSL interpretation, subtitles and audio.

The iPad tour leads you around the factory and includes narrated films which introduce the rooms and spaces, interviews with former workers, demonstrations of the machinery used in the manufacturing processes and interviews with the conservation team who were involved in the restoration and repair work at the factory in 2013.

The tour was filmed before conservation works began on Newman Brothers and on the iPad you’ll be able to see the rooms in their crumbling state, before the roof was fixed and the contents were returned!


Here are some films to give you a flavour of the tour:
