Federal Standard Printing Works

The Federal Standard Printing Works and Newspaper Office is part of a large museum complex.
The Federal Standard commenced in 1859, and continued operations for 110 years, finally closing in 1969. It was taken over by the National Trust in 1972, and houses the office and printing “factory” with the machines that were operating at the turn of the century. Volunteers still open the Federal Standard and offer a wonderful display of historic printing processes in action, demonstrating printing on a linotype machine. The shop include a collection of wood and metal type, and a Wharfdale press.
