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.

  • Stopped off here on our honeymoon as part of a day around the Windermere area. It's dog friendly which is a plus but dogs aren't allowed in the actual factory understandably. Friendly and helpful...

  • Just been to Stott Park Bobbin Mill. It was a lovely visit and we just arrived in time for a guided tour. It is well worth a visit and then you can be really grateful that you didn't live in those times. Health and Safety just didn't exist!!
  • Brilliant! Make sure you don't miss the tour. The lady giving the tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. Explained the whole bobbin making process, even made some bobbins and gave to the kids. Great and unique English Heritage site
