News & Events
Masons have completed the work on the conservation of the Horizontal Engine House and the New Pit heapstead at Brandy Bottom. This has been funded by a combination of a grant from the Ibstock Enovert Trust and the AIBT's resources.
Four interpretation boards have been made, thanks to a grant from Historic England. Two are already in place, and the foundations for the other two will be built over the next few work parties.
A 'Friends of Brandy Bottom' newsletter (No 18) was published in February 2018.
