  • Looked at all three floors of very average shopping. Same as you would find anywhere. Did not notice that hidden away in the basement would be a museum of the old mill machinery. Fine building and sit...  more »

  • This is a great place to visit if in the area. Factory Outlet goods on 4 floors, Museum and excellent small cafe/restaurant. Parking is easy - £1.50 for 2 hours (you get given a .75p voucher for use in store and/or cafe). Worth a good look.
  • This place was very interesting especially the tour of the mill with the live demonstration. Cafe was very clean with a nice cuppa!! Nice things to buy in the shops too.
  • Fantastic place to browse around with a great selection of products. Brilliant indoor kids play area for only £1 per child, with a separate baby area. Interesting building (old textiles mill) with a small museum inside. Cafe serving nice homemade food and a good selection of drinks .
  • Well worth a visit. The museum gives a fascinating insight into the working conditions in a 19th century mill. Access is reasonably easy by car, but I was travelling in a 7-metre motorhome, and it was very tight for access. They claim to accept coaches, but I don't see where they can accommodate them. Goods in the mill shop seemed to be quite expensive.
  • Well worth a visit here if yous ever this way on just don't get confused like I did on the lifts lol
