Farfield Mill


The preservation of Farfield Mill has given the opportunity to present its history from its origin in 1836 to the present day.

An exhibition created by local people and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund shows examples of the processes involved in producing woollen cloth. Social history associated with the mill is also shown. Included within this exhibition is a 300-year-old Witney blanket loom.

Many visitors appreciate the rugged stone exterior. Like many other buildings in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District it echoes a lifestyle now lost.
