Mill in Steam
May 27, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for a unique experience and bring history to life as we light the Lancashire Boiler, stoke the fire and step back in time to the Victorian Era when water and steam powered the industrial revolution!
Our steam team will be on hand to take you around the steam complex – which included the rare Pollitt and Wigzell mill engine as well as our Beam Engine, generators and newly restored retort house which once converted coal into gas to light the factory.
The factory will also be in production making our yarns and textiles on the heritage looms and machinery – many of which have been at the Mill since Victorian times.
- Factory & Steam Tours
- Steam demonstrations
- Children’s trail and activities
- Have a go sessions – including weaving, hand spinning and knitting
- Victorian Dressing Up
As well as all the exhibitions that tell the story of the Industrial Revolution.
