We vIsited the ironworks after the Big Pit. As this attraction is relatively compact it can easily be visited before or after the Big Pit. The site has good signage explaining the industrial processes, the growth and significance of the iron works. There are a number of cottages decorated and furnished in different eras (1920s, 40s and 60s) together with the ironworks shop - these really make you appreciate how life in the ironworks was lived. A relatively low-key attraction which can be explored at your own pace. Most enjoyable hour to 90 minutes.
