Set next to river and a working mill that provides some of the silks used in films etc. It is undergoing huge refurbishment and will be even better than before.

We knew it was closed but had high hopes of the shop, however it is sited in a very tiny hard to find space. They had a few scarves and were very nice but I think it's best to wait until it reopens.

As I enjoy crafts, when I last visited this mill about 20 years ago I was totally inspired. I decided to visit again with a friend on sunny Bank Holiday Monday, as much for the setting and the café, as for the museum. This time...More

Easy to find but smallish car park. Stunning setting. Water of stream so clear could see dozens of basking trout. Interesting walk around the mill. Good coffee and cake. Shame there was no machines at work. Would have been lovely to see one running.
