Visit Trencherfield Mill with its Machinery Hall where the deafening noise of the cotton spinning machines act as a reminder of the difficult conditions endured by the employees of Trencherfield Mill, and the World’s largest working mill steam engine..
You can ride on the Waterbus along the canal between the Heritage Centre and Trencherfield Mill..
Experience the Twentieth Century in a day in Opie’s Museum of Memories located within the Mill block.
