Stott Park Bobbin Mill

The only working bobbin mill left in the Lake District, Stott Park once produced a quarter of a million wooden bobbins a week, and employed 250 men and boys, often in arduous conditions.

The bobbins were vital to the running of the Lancashire spinning industry. Visitors to this award-winning attraction take a journey from tree to bobbin and are able to see first-hand the production process using the original machinery. Children can dress up and imagine what working life at the mill was like.
