  • I'm sorry to say there is now a question mark over the museums survival. It's a fabulous place with the only working steam powered looms. Part of the kings speech film was set here. The people who are...  more »

  • Only three stars because alas this wonderful museum has now closed. There were lots of things to see and it was interesting to watch what the weavers used to do, as my great aunt was one, in that very mill!
  • We were amazed that this mill has survived intact. The dedicated team of staff maintain the beautiful old steam engine called "Peace", the enormous boilers that provide the steam, the shafts and pulleys that clatter and grind throughout the building, and 300 looms that all still have power to them. It really is incredibly impressive, and it's the only time I've seen a real mechanical loom in operation. Sadly, this mill is under threat of closure due to the cuts. Go and see it while you still can, it will amaze young and old, it's like stepping back in history.
  • I enjoyed my visit to queen st mill .The staff are knowledgeable and pleased to answer any questions you may have.The weaving shed is a sight to behold and the noise of the machines incredible(how they worked in those conditions is hard to contemplate but they did).The steam engine called Peace that drives the looms is a beautiful piece of machinery and can be viewed at close quarters.A great example of our industrial heritage that must be preserved for future generations to experience as once it has gone can never be replaced.
  • Great stories, fantastic staff, best 3 pound ever spent. Take the kids and grand parents
  • Excellent museum. Very interesting indeed. It will be a great shame and a loss if it does indeed close in September.
