We welcomed the Wednesday club here from Newtown, Powys.
Tanat Valley Coaches brought them safely here and their driver received our compliments and additional benefits under our new scheme, encouraging bus company's to visit Oswestry and the British Ironwork Centre.

There was a coach load of them which was one of the largest group visits we have had for a while. 
Emma gave them a tour where they enjoyed a Blacksmith and Silversmith demo, as well as a breathtaking falconry display.

They even got a sneak peak at our knife angel project too!
