Online records for this collection are currently in preparation. One of Britain's greatest industrial heritage sites showing how a complete working community lived. A collection of machines and other items relating to the cotton industry, many in working order (a giant iron waterwheel drives the spinning machines and looms); flying machinery which transformed the cotton first into spun yarn and calico. Demonstrations of the working machinery, hand-spinning and weaving run daily.
