I'd never heard of this place before, despite knowing the region reasonably well, and was highly delighted to discover it. Entry is free, and so it's reliant on local council funding and donations. It's a credit, then, that it can remain open to the public....More

This attraction is ok at best- the staff are very enthusiastic but the place itself is a bit dull. Not enough celebration of Samuel Crompton and it is a bit empty.
