  • 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.

  • Interesting tourist attraction. (Still a working Silk Mill).
  • 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.
  • Really enjoyable experience! Went for a business breakfast and now i often pop in for a visit!
  • An interesting mill and good staff well worth the visit
