Come and experience Hayes Engineering Works in fully operational mode at the open days over the summer months. The machinery at the Works will be demonstrated on guided tours that leave on the hour from 10am to 4pm.

Walk through the factory to learn more about the entreprenuerial Ernest Hayes and his wife, Hannah. Appreciate the ingenuity that went into many of the inventions that are so familiar in agriculture today - from wire strainers to windmills.

Then tour through the renovated homestead with its own fascinating stories.

Refreshments are available in our cafe, or bring your own picnic to enjoy in the grounds. Perhaps pick up a souvenir. Plenty of parking for cars and cyclists!
