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

It is with much sadness that we have had to close the Mill until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We very much hope that we can re-open later in the Summer and look forward to welcoming you then.  As an independent Museum we get no Government funding so this will be an even tougher year for us.  But, more importantly, we hope all our staff, volunteers, Friends, supporters and visitors stay safe and healthy.
