Queen Street Mill Textile Museum

Queen Street Mill is Grade 1 listed and the last surviving 19th century steam powered weaving mill in the world. Relive the days when cotton was king and watch our weaving technicians demonstrate how to turn cotton into cloth on our heritage looms and take the opportunity to see our magnificent steam engine 'Peace' and hear all about her history.

Come along and join a guided tour and learn more about working life in a mill and experience the sights and sounds of this unique heritage venue.

Chimney works
Whilst works are ongoing repairing the Queen Street Mill chimney we are unable to fire the boilers and put the engine into steam, we hope the works will be completed later this year. In addition for public safety there remains an exclusion zone in place inside the mill so in order to ensure visitors can see all of our fascinating spaces we will run regular guided tours around the mill with regular talks in the engine shed during our opening hours.
