New Mills heritage and information Centre

ew Mills Heritage and Information Centre 2015

This brief tour follows the flow of the museum as it describes the history of New Mills.


Along the way, we pass the pulpit that John Wesley preached from in the second half of the eighteenth century, the mine and the model of New Mills.


John Watts waits in his cubicle to tell his story, and we end in our small cafe.
