Preserving our heritage

Weaving is fundamentally linked to man’s development from the earliest times, through the industrial revolution and is still vital for modern living. Museums and especially preserved buildings and artifacts are vital for understanding our history, not just local history, but our national heritage and our place in world history too.

Please help save these museums and mill buildings. The cotton weaving industry that played such an important part in our country’s development was centered in Lancashire these are the last ones left in Lancashire, and there aren’t many anywhere else either! Queen street is the last operational mill surviving, still operated by steam engine.
