COVID - 19 message

In accordance with the latest Government advice concerning the Corona Virus the Works will not be holding any special open days until normality is resumed. However, if you wish to visit the Works, please get in touch with the Chairman or Secretary and we will be more than willing to make arrangements accordingly.

The Tavistock Steam & Vintage Fair 2021 will begin speculative preparations in the new year. Of course, with the situation as fluid as it is, nothing is certain.
