  • A beautiful place to visit and great if you are interested in social and industrial history. It's fascinating when the waterwheel is turning. The staff were polite and very helpful.
  • Still have a working wheel to power the museum. You are welcome to take your dog too. Only couple hour visit if you have a cuppa but well worth it
