Farfield Mill


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

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.

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