2013 Special Events & Exhibitions
Don't miss this unique experience. See the Mill's rare 1910 Pollit & Wigzell 300hp steam engine, 1867 Kittoe & Brotherhood Beam Engine and Lancashire Boiler operating under steam. And, not forgetting the fully restored Water Wheel built especially for the mill in 1821. A fantastic event and an amazing experience.
On Steam Up days, the Engines run between 11.00am and 4.00pm. The Mill-site, shop and restaurant are open from 10.30am.
Tours of mill are also available on these days where you can see the process of turning combed worsted tops into knitting yarn on Victorian period spinning & twisting frames. Weaving can also be seen on Hattersley shuttle looms.
