Mill Open Days 2017

There’s something different to see at each of the three sites. During the summer you can visit Gigg and Dunkirk on the same day, see dates and times.

Dunkirk Mill Centre

Part of a large mill complex, reached by an attractive walk down the former railway track, past the restored mill pond. At the Centre, the waterwheel will run and the guides will demonstrate all the intricate machinery that was used to finish the cloth after it left the loom.
