  • A mill that has been converted into a café. Yes, it is in a lovely location. For the museum part; I was in and out in 5 minutes. Very little to see and quite an expensive entrance fee for one visit. The 'entrance pass' does last six months however if you want to go there regularly. None of the videos worked when I was there, which was a shame.
  • Our fantastic Silk Mill is just across the road from my house, so I am biased. However the industrial heritage is very sensitively preserved and the shop is full of beautiful things. the cafe is great for an inexpensive lunch of home made treats, but best of all are the Silk Mill's regular events that are always worth attending.
