There’s far more to the building than first meets the eye, and no wonder – it’s designed to look at the whole cidermaking industry, from its earliest beginnings through to the mass production methods which exist today. Visitors can find out about methods – how the apples were milled and pressed and how the resulting juice was fermented to produce cider – and about Herefordshire’s history.
