Jinney Ring Craft Centre and Restaurant

Hanbury, Bromsgrove Food and Drink, Just for Two, Family Friendly, Great Outdoors

The Jinney Ring name came from Richard's fasciniation with old farm machinery (of which there is much around the grounds and buildings of the Centre). The Jinney Ring was the earlist form of rotary power used on farms. Until the beginning of the 19th Century the only forms of power available on farms were horses and water. The invention of the Jinney Ring allowed horse power to be converted to drive farm, previously manual, equipment. The horse would walked around a large wheel with cogs which turned shafts and then belts and chains of the farm equipment such as corn grinders, sugar beat shredders and mangles. In some parts of the country the Jinney Ring was called "gin-gangs" from which came the word "engine". There is also a real Jinney ring outside of the main Gift Shop door at the Centre.


Richard and Jenny retired in 2005, selling the business to Malcolm and Amanda Sunter. Since they have owned the Centre Amanda and Malcolm have extended the gardens, opened an evening restaurant, introduced a Falconry as well as started several annual festivals. They continue to invest ion the old buildings and are committed to the principles of there predessors.


They now welcome you to the Jinney Ring and hope you enjoy your visit.
