See industry from a bygone age at Stott Park Bobbin Mill, the only working bobbin mill left in the Lake District. Nestled on the lakeshore, this typical Cumbrian mill from 1835 has retained its Victorian appearance. Take a guided tour to bring the story of the mill to life. A hands-on exhibit and dressing up for children allow visitors to imagine what it was like to produce hundreds of thousands of bobbins a week in arduous conditions. Don't forget to take a bobbin home as a souvenir. Plan your Stott Park Bobbin Mill visit and explore what else you can see and do in Ulverston using our Ulverston trip itinerary tool.

  • Awesome place to spend time, the tour was really insightful about Victorian mills and the mechanics of how they worked and were powered. It was really brilliant, and to be honest unexpected, to find they still make bobbins and the machines are mostly still operational. There's lots of good walks from the mill with free maps and guides available so bring a packed lunch and make a day of it! I think the most interesting English Heritage site we've ever visited!
  • A very interesting and entertaining place to visit. We visited on a rainy day, and to be honest we weren't expecting too much. What a surprise. The tour around the mill was brilliant. It was very well done and very entertaining. The kids, aged 6 to 9, were all enthralled - and to top it off they all got a bobbin, which the guide had made during the tour, to take home. I would definitely recommend a visit.
