Welcome to Kingswood Heritage Museum
Here you can find out about the exciting museum inside the 18th Century brass mill at Warmley with its icehouse and windmill tower and the gardens nearby with grottoes, echo pond and huge statue of Neptune.
William Champion’s 18th Century brass works at Warmley represent an important milestone in industrial history. It was here that he developed the first commercial production of zinc in Europe.
Housed within the main building, this Museum for Kingswood holds a variety of enjoyable displays of local industries and social history of the area for all the family.
Inside the Museum is a café, toilets and a well-stocked bookshop. We are managed and run solely by volunteers and in 2013 the Museum was awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
