Heritage Open Days

Heritage open days goes digital in 2020

2020 has been a funny year. The global pandemic has turned life upside down! The nature of how we experience events has, most likely, changed for the foreseeable, and the mill’s annual Heritage Open Days is no different.

This year our tours are appointment only, with limited numbers. So we’ve created lots of digital content for you to enjoy from the comfort of your sofa!

Watch managing directors John and William Gaunt’s video tours, explore our spaces in 360 degrees, listen to oral histories from former mill workers, quizzes and more. Keep scrolling…
