Welcome to Coldharbour Mill, a 200 year old spinning mill set in the tranquil Devon village of Uffculme.

Built by Thomas Fox to spin woollen and later worsted yarns in 1799, Coldharbour Mill is a rare surviving example of Georgian architecture, industry and enterprise.

Since reopening as a museum in 1982 the mill has continued to produce high quality worsted knitting yarn on its period machinery.

Take a fascinating factory tour to understand how the hand processes of spinning and weaving are performed on machines and the role of Thomas Fox in bringing these new inventions into the South West.

Learn about Victorian mill conditions and how Quaker attitudes influenced the treatment and welfare of mill employees, many of whom were children.

Take a look at the mill's impressive array of power sources including a recently restored 1821 High Breast Shot Water Wheel, the largest in the South West, an 1867 Kittoe & Brotherhood Beam Engine, a rare 1910 Pollit & Wigzell 300hp Steam Engine and a Lancashire Boiler, which we 'Steam Up' on special event days (see the museum's event page).

On the first floor of the Mill, there is an exhibition celebrating the manufacture of puttees - one of the Fox firm's iconic products and the Fox Gallery houses a permanent 'Home Front' exhibition with displays and memorabilia relating to the war (WWII) years.

The mill shop sells many unique products, including a range of knitting wools and fabrics manufactured exclusively by the mill.

With this and so much more, a visit to Coldharbour Mill is an exciting and very different day out.

We visited this attraction on Saturday 23rd July. We had previously informed that we would be coming on this date and had given an approximate time of arrival. However, we were running approximately 40 mins behind schedule. I was the minibus driver for a party of 10 friends. On arrival in the car park I was in desperate need of... 更多

Some good old machinery, some good historic displays. But why did British innovation in this field dry up a hundred years ago? Factories that had at one time lead the world eventually closed down as the rest of the world introduced new technology and skills - very sad. Not the most inspiring of cafes.

We were given a very knowledgeable tour of the mill and it was fascinating to listen to and see the demonstrations. I had no idea how much work went into collecting the wool and preparing it for weaving. As mentioned by others the cafe is a let down. Some of the menu items were not available and the sandwiches were... 更多

We visited on Steam Day 29th May where all the steam engines are working. The chap who took us on the Steam tour was great - very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. Our son got to try out a model railway and he did the kids quiz which he enjoyed. The musical mill tour was also very interesting and... 更多

It is 30 years since our last visit. Won't leave it so long next time. A great experience with knowledgeable guide. New cafe will be good when it is settled in. A must see on steam days I am sure and can't wait to go myself when in steam.

A very interesting mill, lots of history and ambience. I love the solid sounds of the old looms pounding. Also, an excellent new craft shop opening soon with work by local textile artist, Jan Tillett.

Our group visited this historic Woollen Mill and were treated to a fascinating insight into both the history of the Mill and lives and working conditions that the workers over the centuries endured. Plus very interesting displays of the working machinery and the various processes that wool went through to become either a woolen ot worsted garment. The two guides... 更多
