17. Main Workshop (Now, beyond the car park all the buildings are arranged in a half circle with a yard in the middle. The big, stone building at the top is the Main Workshop.)
18. Showroom (Now, in the top right-hand corner, that building with bigger windows is the Showroom, where samples of all the tools that were made through the ages are on display.)
19. Café (In the top left corner is the Grinding Shop, where the tools were sharpened and finished. And on one side of that you can see the Engine Room and the other is the Cafe, which isn't an antique, you'll be pleased to know, though they do serve very nice old-fashioned teas.)
20. Cottages (The row of buildings you can see on the left are the cottages. These were built for the workers towards the end of the eighteenth century and they're still furnished from that period so you can get a good idea of ordinary people's living conditions.)
