STOTT PARK BOBBIN MILL - near LAKESIDE, NEWBY BRIDGE

Stott Park Bobbin MillStott Park Bobbin Mill is situated at Finsthwaite in a woodland setting near Newby Bridge which is just South of Lake Windermere and is one [1] of the few surviving and preserved working museum mills in the country which once provided the bobbins to the spinning and weaving industry in Lancashire.

On the tour you will see the bobbins being made using the mill's original machinery and techniques of the 19th century in which it was powered by a static steam engine in tandem with a water turbine with the mill using birch, ash and sycamore to make the wooden tool handles along with the bobbins.

You can also visit the small exhibition and a gift shop to browse and purchase your gifts.
