Description

Explore the history and heritage of Mossley Mill and hear the story of the people who worked there from 1800s to 1996.

Housed within what was originally the wet spinning floor of the mill, the museum tells the story of Mossley Mill and the people who worked there. The museum features the development of the mill in recent years as a civic and cultural centre and important site for natural heritage.
Many features, such as the mill pond, have been preserved and enhanced to support the area's biodiversity. The pond is one of three that used to supply the mill with water. This important wetland habitat is now an 'urban pond' filled with freshwater wildlife.
Through a range of colourful displays including artefacts, images and archival film, you can explore both the past and present of this unique historical site. The museum conveys a real sense of the people who worked in the mill and their stories and histories.
Tours are available for groups. All tours must be booked in advance.
