Awesome place to spend time, the tour was really insightful about Victorian mills and the mechanics of how they worked and were powered. It was really brilliant, and to be honest unexpected, to find they still make bobbins and the machines are mostly still operational. There's lots of good walks from the mill with free maps and guides available so bring a packed lunch and make a day of it! I think the most interesting English Heritage site we've ever visited!
A very interesting and entertaining place to visit. We visited on a rainy day, and to be honest we weren't expecting too much. What a surprise. The tour around the mill was brilliant. It was very well done and very entertaining. The kids, aged 6 to 9, were all enthralled - and to top it off they all got a bobbin, which the guide had made during the tour, to take home. I would definitely recommend a visit.
