The Man Engine

Combine a stay with us at Puddle Duck Cottages and enjoy this fantastic family event.

This is your once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of the amazing Man Engine 'Awakening Ceremony' at Blists Hill Victorian Town on Saturday 14 April.

Help wake the massive mechanical marvel from his slumber with songs, chants and cheers. Don't forget to visit the Victorian Townsfolk of Blists Hill in their wonderful shops, cottage and places of work.

Man Engine is the largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in Britain. He weighs nearly 40 tonnes, crawls at 4.5m high and ‘transforms’ to stand at nearly 12m. Engineered in Cornwall to mark the 10th anniversary of the county’s World Heritage status, the Man Engine is touring venues across the UK to celebrate Britain’s rich industrial heritage.

We are dog friendly
