Candle Ferris Wheel
Favorite thing: Look out tor the unique candle dipping Ferris wheel, built by a local craftman and standing over 30 feet high. Its probably the only one of its kiind in the country, may be the world!
Unfortunately it was not in use the day we visited but there are plenty of photographs on the wall about it.
Favorite thing: Of course you can buy candles ready made - the choice is endless and you can spend ages browsing in their shop deciding which candle to buy for those special friends ;-)
Above the shop there are also activities for children wo like to paint models or holders for the candles they have just made.

Favorite thing: Just 20 mins from Chester in the heart of the Cheshire countryside lies these workshops where you can watch skilled artisans carving candles by hand in the ancient art of candle making. Its fun and admission is free!
You can buy your candles and then choose the colour you want - watch and wait whilst its done in a jiffy.

Open 10am - 5 pm
Favorite thing: For a small charge you can dip and create your own candles, guided by the artisans. This appears to be very popular with children.
The candles are dipped several times in the wax to build them up and cooled in water inbetween each wax dipping.
Favorite thing: Many chose two different colours for each candle and then had them twisted together at the end to form one large candle.
