This was once the biggest clay tobacco pipe-maker in the country, but the industry took a nose-dive after the introduction of pre-rolled cigarettes in the 1880s, and the factory was preserved much as the last worker left it when the last lights were turned off in 1957. The pipeworks is a 1-mile walk south of the river (cross the Ironbridge and follow the signs) on a winding lane that passes the old workers' cottages (ask the tourist office for the Jitties leaflet).
