Mill Tours – Sunday 9th June
These tours are part of our Mill Open Weekend celebrations.
During our Mill Open Weekend we open our big roller shutter doors and invite you all inside! On a mill tour you’ll be able to learn about our vintage wool processing and spinning machinery. Our trusty Mill Folk will be on hand to explain things as you travel through the mill, providing you with a glimpse of how our yarn and tops are made. Each tour offers the opportunity to wander around the mill, soak everything up and ask as many questions as you fancy. We like to think that all this special attention helps those venerable old machines run more smoothly throughout the rest of the year!
This year’s Mill Open Weekend event will be held in the beautiful eighteenth century function rooms in South Molton Town Hall. Because of this, we have organised a minibus to collect you from just outside the Town Hall, take you to the mill, and drop you off again after the tour. The tour time on your ticket is the time that the bus will leave. All you will need to do is check in at the info desk in the Town Hall 15 minutes beforehand and someone will be on hand to provide instructions on exactly how and where to catch your minibus to the mill.
If you click the link below then you will be taken to our booking system on Eventbrite to complete your booking. You’re also more then welcome to give us a bell (+44 (0)1769 579861) and book over the phone if you would prefer. Thanks!
Check in Location: The New Assembly Room, South Molton Town Hall, EX36 3AB
Times: Hourly from 9.15. Please check in at least 15 minutes before your tour time.
Duration: The return bus will drop you off outside South Molton Town Hall approximately 1-1:30hr after booking time.
Date: Sunday 9th June, 2024
We are so looking forward to throwing our doors open and inviting you inside for our MOW celebrations!

Accessibility: If, for accessibility reasons, you wish to book a parking space at the mill rather than use the minibus, please contact us (via email to [email protected] or phone +44 (0)1769 579861) and we can reserve a space for you. Spaces are very limited so this option is only available to those unable to take the minibus. Also bear in mind that the tour is a standing tour for 45 minutes including stairs for the second half of the tour. There is limited seating that can be provided safely while demonstrating machines so please just let us know if this is a concern for you. We are more than happy to discuss your needs / any questions you may have. Just get in touch.
More Info: Please bear in mind that although we are happy for children to come along to the Mill Open Weekend, due to health and safety restrictions children under 11 cannot go on a tour, and any children between 11 and 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult over 18. We also love dogs, and they are welcome in the Town Hall, but unable to go round the mill.
