Coldharbour Mill Museum

Coldharbour Mill is one of the oldest woollen mills in the UK having been in continuous production since 1797.

Originally owned by world-renown textile producers Fox Brothers the Mill took fleece from all over world and transformed it into yarn, cloth and textiles.

Today the rich heritage lives on as one of the finest working wool museums where visitors are not just able to relive the sights and sounds of the industrial revolution but also see crafts people making traditional textiles, beautiful knitting yarn and hand woven rugs.

Coldharbour Mill was powered by steam from 1865 until its close in 1981. Much of this equipment still exists in its original context and can be seen running on steam if only for demonstration purposes several times a year by members of the Steam Volunteer Group. Most of the steam exhibits are original to this site at Uffculme, others have been brought here from Fox`s nearby mill at Tonedale, Wellington.
