Details

Join our Spade Makers for a guided tour of Patterson's Spade Mill.

Engage your senses and hear the hammers ring on the anvils, see the flames and feel the heat of traditional spade-making.

Guided tours vividly capture life during the Industrial Revolution and dig up the history and culture of the humble spade.

Find out the origins of the phrase 'a face as long as a Lurgan spade'. Spoiler alert: it's not what you think.
