This was once the biggest clay tobacco pipe-maker in the country, but the industry nose-dived after the introduction of prerolled cigarettes in the 1880s, and the factory was preserved much as it was when the lights were turned off in 1957. The pipeworks is a 1-mile walk south of the river on a winding lane that passes the old workers' cottages. Ask the tourist office for the Jitties leaflet, which has a walking tour of laneways around the pipeworks.
