  • A serendipitous discovery as I was in the village for work, just had to come back with my wife and kids as its such a beautiful place. The river is delightful full of huge trout and ducks and swans then there's the mill itself a delightful building with good educational materials and a nice little tea shop. Plus pay for entry once and it allows a return visit within 12 months.
  • Fascinating, the UK's only working silk mill (during the week)
  • This place is lovely! The setting is beautiful, the mill is working and interesting, the kids got to try a few things and it was a very pleasant way to spend an hour or so.
  • If you are in the area definitely worth a visit if you live nearby memberships are a reasonable price remember to give generously to this lovely historical building :)
  • Dont ever let this place close. Its fantastic and a true piece of history
