Great place. Lots of stuff buy. There is a museum at the bottom where a knowledgable gentleman told us about the history of the mill and demonstrated the machines. It was fascinating!

We decided to walk the cromford canal from withstandwell and ended up here so ended up here. The history is very interesting as is the place. It also has connections with our town of Bolton. Try it sometime.

The tour was good, loads of working machinery to see and great explanations of how it all worked and what it was for. Children loved hearing about the experience of the working children of the day although would themselves have been terrified of doing such a job. Shame that to see all of it there is an extra charge for a gold ticket to visit one last bit seems unnecessary and money grabbing...

I have been lots of times to the shopping centre at Masson mill but have never been in the mill museum before yesterday. It is very interesting and the guide seemed knowledgable about the workings of the machines the working demonstrations are interesting to watch, you will be able to see it making cloth, but what a tough job it must have been and very noisy when the factory was full of working machines. We got a gold ticket that lets you go on another tour around the boiler room as well. I would say it is worth checking it out. I would also say you might have to ask how to find your way in to the mill as the entrance is in side the shop on the bottom floor at the back but the entrance to the mill is not obvious if your not familiar with the building. Entrance price very reasonable as well parking very good value and you also get £1.50 money back when you shop from the parking ticket if you show it at the time of purchase. Not sure if this applies to the mill tour ticket price though. Also we got there about 11:30 am and was told the tour was not until 2:00pm but I didn’t mind that we had lunch and did some shopping until then
