Stott Park Bobbin Mill

Stott Park Bobbin Mill

Finsthwaite, Cumbria

This working mill was built in 1835 by John Harrison, who had inherited the site. Stott Park created the wooden bobbins vital to the spinning and weaving industries of Lancashire. It was small compared to some mills – employing up to 250 workers – but still produced a quarter of a million bobbins a week and, in addition, made handles for various tools.
