Brilliant! Make sure you don't miss the tour. The lady giving the tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. Explained the whole bobbin making process, even made some bobbins and gave to the kids. Great and unique English Heritage site
Visit to the Bobbin Mill was very interesting and informative. You get a guided tour that is fascinating. Both guides are extremely friendly ; with a special shout out to our guide Margaret who was excellent and was very patient with my questions. Definitely recommend!!!
Brilliantly fascinating place. Brilliant tour. Would love to have seen the steam engine running. Lovely walk towards the Higher Dam after. What a lovely place to spend a couple of hours ... even in the pouring rain
The last surviving bobbin Mill in Cumbria if not in England and it still works. The factory is powered by an electric motor except on Bank Holidays then the steam power is brought into play. A fascinating place really well worth the visit. There are 2 small car parks next to the Mill and a much larger carpar a short distance alone the lane. There's also a nice walk to the High Dam, a very scenic spot where you can walk around the lake and/or go swimming.
Wasn’t open when I went but I had a walk around and checked it out. There’s a gate with a path to take you around the whole place and a few interesting places along the way. There’s a wood carving shed and a waterfall. Definitely something for the family but good for a walk! Will check it out when I can 👍🏻
