Welcome to Coldharbour Mill

 Coldharbour Mill is one of the oldest woollen mills in the UK having been in continuous production since 1797. Originally owned by world-renowned textile producers Fox Brothers, the Mill took fleece from all over the world and transformed it into yarn, cloth and textiles. Today the rich heritage lives on as one of the finest working wool museums where visitors are not just able to relive the sights and sounds of the industrial revolution but also see crafts men and women making traditional textiles, beautiful knitting yarn and hand woven rugs.

"probably one of the best-preserved textile mill complexes in the country." - Historic England

Can you help Coldharbour Mill?

In common with all other museums and heritage sites, Coldhabour Mill is currently closed owing to Covid-19, which hit just as we were about to reopen in March.    Enforced closure means that our main source of income from visitor admission fees has ceased. As a charity with limited cash reserves, and no government or council funding, we rely on the support and generosity of many people to preserve our local treasure for future generations. This is even more important now.

We urgently need £20,000 just for basic costs for the next few months, so that staff can continue to work from home to keep systems running and support over 100 of our very valuable volunteers, and be ready to reopen to the public as soon as that is allowed.

There are ways you can help us to keep going until we can reopen!

If you take out Mill membership now for just £20 per person or £45 per family, it will be valid until December 2021, so you will have unlimited FREE entry and be able to take advantage of all the benefits for well over a year.
