Rolling Mill

The rolling mill depicts a typical Black Country hand rolling mill in which iron and later, steel bars were reduced in size or changed in section.

The iron bars are heated up in the cast iron furnace and then passed through the mill stands several times to reduce the size of the section.

It was installed at Birchley Rolling Mills, Oldbury in 1923 using second hand parts and has been reconstructed at the Museum as it would have appeared around 1900.

When in operation the mill is now driven by a modern electrical motor.
