Four Storeys, our story
Discover the New Standard Works’ heritage stories on a guided tour of our four storey building. You will see how the Ruskin Mill Land Trust has transformed a derelict jewellery manufactory into a vibrant mixed-use development centred around Argent College, a specialist education provider for young people aged 16-25 run by Ruskin Mill Trust. This tour takes you behind the scenes and across the building’s four floors, including into the ‘walk in’ safe in the derelict basement and to the unique rooftop micro-farm. You’ll be able to learn more about the stories of the former occupants in our heritage exhibitions and art installations.
For families, we have a range of trails and activities to help younger visitors explore our exhibitions, and the craft resource box is open for everyone to be creative and make something during their time with us. Tours available at various times.
