This is a photo of the children stood with a statue of Sir Richard Arkwright, the owner of the two Mills. We had a walk around the floors of the mill first, where i bought some lovely coloured string and some buttons (couldn't resist!) and then we paid to go and look around the textile museum.
This is Bailey using the original clocking in machine that the workers would have to use. Although, quarter to two would have been quite late to start work in a factory!
Getting weighed together on the old fashioned weighing scales!
This was the boiler room, the younger two found this room quite scary as the boilers were so huge and quite intimidating. Bub's even found a tiny mouse hole but I didn't get chance to take a picture as they were already running to the end of the tour!
Finally finished our tour of the museum and this is the grand entrance of the front of the mill.
