  • Very interesting and good informative staff. Was great to see the machinery working. Well worth a visit and lovely walks near by. 
  • The mill is great the saf are so informative some of the saff either use to work there or had relatives that worked at the mill there are loads of hands on stuff you can try from weaving to bailing
  • Lots of history and great demos of the machines working. Cant belive they are going to close it.
  • Nice atmosphere staff are friendly but horrified it,s to close March next year I've signed a petition against this ,along with many others . 28 /11/15 let's all help to keep our historic buildings alive .

Only closed in 1970s as a working mill, so very well preserved. Friendly and knowledgable guides. All the usual tourist trail add-ons - shop, cafe, toilets....
  • Excellent visit. Staff very informative.
