Take a tour on a family day out of this extensive working mill dating back to 1835 that produced the wooden bobbins vital to the Lancashire cotton spinning and weaving industries. Watch bobbins being made on original belt driven machinery and imagine the conditions for the Victorian workers, many of whom were employed from the workhouse. A hands-on family trail with dressing up for children helps visitors to imagine what it was like to work at the mill. Check for steam days during summer.
