The story of Farfield Mill, Sedbergh

Farfield Mill is owned and run by Farfield Mill Limited, a charitable community benefit society. We are proud to be a cooperative organisation, owned and run by our members for the benefit of the wider community. As a charity we are subject to an asset lock, and (apart from receiving modest interest on their investment, if we can afford it) our members themselves do not profit from our activities.

As an organisation we exist to honour and preserve Farfield Mill’s textile heritage providing a hub for creative enterprises, engaging the visiting public with and fostering in them an appreciation of weaving and other traditional and contemporary arts and crafts, and giving them an understanding of the significance of the heritage of the local wool industry.

Heritage at Farfield Mill

Our heritage display was created by local people with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It shows examples of the processes involved in producing woollen cloth and the social history associated with the Mill. Included within our exhibition is a 300-year-old Witney blanket loom.
