  • 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
  • Wonderful fully working steam powered yes all steam powered no electric motors here. Original looms being driven by the original steam engine being powered by the original Lancashire boilers, only one of its kind in the world, the noise of over 300 looms being driven is something you must experience its ear shattering ear protection is provided of course. Lancashire County council are closing the mill as part of their cuts are you out of your bloody mind it should be a world heritage site. Common sense springs to mind!!! ARE YOU LISTENING THIS IS OUR HISTORY. Get down and visit before its wonderful victorian engine and boilers are laid to rest. I wonder if the clueless people at LCC have ever visited the place most probably not. To busy golfing.
  • 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.
  • Excellent museum. Very interesting indeed. It will be a great shame and a loss if it does indeed close in September.
