Come and see Lancashire's largest surviving mill steam engine running!

We have a great day coming up with our penultimate steaming of 2016.

*Please note that our proposed steaming on 4th December has had to be cancelled due to essential maintenance).

Come and see:

  • Lancashire's largest surviving steam mill engine running
  • A second steam engine under restoration (that has just reached a very exciting stage and may be seen turning by electric motor!)
  • Regular guided tours (subject to available volunteers)
  • Weaving explanations
  • A flaming antique boiler

There's a café, gift shop and a collection of model steam engines to view, with some hopefully in steam and some for sale.

As an extra attraction for this steaming we will welcome water colour artist Patricia Jones who will be demonstrating her skills and will be happy to chat to visitors about her work.

Dogs are welcome (on a lead).
