A fantastic piece of social and local history, the ladies running the site this week were great, with working demonstrations of an industry most people know little about. A genuine time capsule in a lovely location.

An English Heritage owned attraction (so free to members) that we found very interesting. The guided tour was very informative. The mill is about a 20 minute walk from Lakeside, but there are no pavements so care should be taken.

I do like this sort of industrial based museum, so perhaps I'm bias, but seriously this was a real highlight of our holiday. Even the kids (who can be easily bored), loved it and after the holiday was done was one of the things they...More

Can you park a motor home in visitors car park

Response from Carol B | Reviewed this property |
This depends on the size of the motor home, the road is narrow and it will be a tight turn into the car park, once in there is plenty of room to park a motor home
