Built by Thomas Fox to spin woollen and later worsted yarns in 1799, Coldharbour Mill is a rare surviving example of Georgian architecture, industry and enterprise. Since reopening as a museum in 1982 the mill has continued to produce high quality worsted knitting yarn on its period machinery. Take a fascinating factory tour to understand how the hand processes of spinning and weaving are performed on machines and the role of Thomas Fox in bringing these new inventions into the South West. Learn about Victorian mill conditions and how Quaker attitudes influenced the treatment and welfare of mill employees, many of whom were children. Take a look at the mill's impressive array of power sources including a recently restored 1821 High Breast Shot Water Wheel, the largest in the South West, an 1867 Kittoe & Brotherhood Beam Engine, a rare 1910 Pollit & Wigzell 300hp Steam Engine and a Lancashire Boiler, which we 'Steam Up' on special event days (see the museum's event page). On the first floor of the Mill, there is an exhibition celebrating the manufacture of puttees - one of the Fox firm's iconic products and the Fox Gallery houses a permanent 'Home Front' exhibition with displays and memorabilia relating to the war (WWII) years. The mill shop sells many unique products, including a range of knitting wools and fabrics manufactured exclusively by the mill. With this and so much more, a visit to Coldharbour Mill is an exciting and very different day out. less
