You are here:

Manchester Mills

Wheels churn like the clackers. Machines roar like thunder. Looms leap into life.

Wrap yourselves up in the mystery of the mills as we weave together the world of Manchester’s diverse community of millworkers. Feel the frenzy of industry as we bring to life our most prized collection of objects and turn raw cotton into fine products like calico cloth.

This special edition of our regular demonstrations will run in both English and Bengali, in honour of the many Bangladeshi mill workers who contributed significantly to Manchester’s Cottonopolis story.
