untitledIn these unprecedented times, our priority is to support the national effort to keep people safe, following the Government’s advice and taking the appropriate action to protect our team, and everyone who visits, or lives around the Mill.

There is an increasing awareness of the importance of visiting museums in supporting our mental health and physical wellbeing. That is even more important today. That’s why, whilst we are closing the Mill from Friday 20 March – we are doing all we can to preserve living weaving heritage at the Mill and to delight all our now non-visitors, volunteers and paid team even though our doors are closed.

Whilst our planned programme of exhibitions and events has had to be suspended, the Mill will remain safe and well cared for. Our intention is to continue weaving on-site during the closure, which we will bring to you virtually. We are also developing a range of other digital content, so you can experience the magic we weave from the comfort of your own homes.

Please follow us on social media for the latest information; and if you can, whilst observing the latest public health guidance, please visit and enjoy the nature, gardens and countryside on your doorstep and think of the Mill.

We will also keep you up to date with our re-opening news.

Thank you. I hope that you and your families and friends stay safe and well.

Best wishes,

Sue Tapliss, Mill Director
