It’s almost Christmas so today is the last day of the museum being staffed by our volunteers. We will open again on Wednesday 9th January to allow our volunteers to have a long festive rest after a busy year.
You can still visit our display cases when Abbey Mill business centre is open over the festive period.
We will leave you with this lovely shot from 2010 of Anchor mill with Mile End visible in the background.
It was important that any information e.g. regarding mill machinery or new safety regulations, was distributed to all the mills worldwide.
The museum collection holds detailed records of what information was given, when it was sent, and the date when it had been signed for, as read, by the mills representative.
