The River Don Engine was used to drive a heavy plate mill. The workers at the River Don Works would throw birch twigs at the hot metal to lift scale off the steel.

There is a story that once a rabbit was caught up in the birch twigs and started running around the factory until the workers chased it out - it must have been a very hot cross bunny!

On Easter Sunday and Monday children can pick up a Hot Cross Bunnies Easter Trail to follow their movements around the museum - can you find all ten bunnies to collect your prize?!

The Easter trail is suitable for children of all ages, and is free as part of the usual entry fee (Adults £6 | Concessions £5 | Accompanied children U16 free)
