Boxford visit

A group of year 10 and 11 students travelled a total of 200 miles in one day in order to visit Boxford Ltd at a factory near Huddersfield. We saw some amazing equipment that produces machines like ours in the workshop. All the staff were extremely friendly and stopped to explain how things were manufactured and finished. Many thanks to Howard and Steve who took us around the building and looked after us. They answered hundreds of questions but we forgot one. Can we come again?
