  • Regular guided tours (subject to available volunteers)]
  • Weaving demonstrations
  • A flaming antique boiler
  • Café and gift shop
  • Collection of model steam engines with some hopefully in steam and some for sale

There is disabled access, free parking, a tea room, the gift shop, a large collection of model steam engines and a fascinating historic cotton mill to explore. Dogs are welcome (on a lead).
