Not the place it once was. Visited on a rainy day. Reasonably informative but some of the boards were quite text heavy and hidden gems of information were stuck in display cabinets. Good to celebrate the history of the factory but felt that more could have been made of the value of graphite and the significance of the factory for the town itself. We were given a quiz to do ( as a group of 4 adults) and a pencil each as we entered. Prizes for the completed quiz was two coloured pencils and some pencil grippers which seemed a bit odd given the age of the group. Probably ok with younger children?
Well stocked shop, and busy attractive café.
