Discover the history of Mossley Mill and other local gems in a great free attraction. Located in an old linen mill renovated to a luxury modern standard.

The converted Mossley Mill is now a Civic centre which houses restaurant, offices, theatre and an excellent museum dedicated to the Mill and Mossley.

The Museum explains all about the uses of the Mill (cotton and Linen), production of linen, the growth of the area and the prominent Mill families. It’s a brilliant exhibition and worth checking out.

I called in to see several things. I always like to pass by Skelton Rainey’s cog wheels, by the entrance. The late sculptor took some of the great metal cog wheels from the mill’s industrial days and mounted them on a wall frame that manages some dynamic angles within its rectangular perimeter.

I passed by the main mill museum exhibition, which is permanently here. In the Flax Gallery I wanted to see Emma Whitehead’s show ‘Linen Time’. She cleverly combines hand stitched silk on Irish Linen with recycled elements like beads, metal, circuit boards and disassembled watches. The resulting insect-like creatures are sparkling, climbing over maps and images of the globe. Are the creatures spinning webs on the fabrics we have spun? Is it about creativity, or perhaps about spending time to return broken and discarded things to “life”? I liked the artworks.

Outside in the corridor were displays on the history of local suffragettes, done by Glynn Kelso of the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland. They were interesting, even shocking, and very thorough. It must be tricky to try to present emotive stories of a time of conflicting ideas with impartiality. It was very well done. One oddity was a TV nearby playing some film on a loop. You had unrelated material playing all the time from its soundtrack, with no-one actually watching it.

Also in the corridor was a machine where you could get a cup of drinking water. Bonus points. The toilets are clean and spacious.

Outside there is a great grass square with several notable sculptures. I do like a cow that is covered with a great number of separate paintings, but I talked about that in a previous review. The whole site is very attractive, considering this was once a brute of a Victorian factory. Car parking spaces outside are plentiful and free. The museum and Flax Gallery are free to enter.

I was not very interested in the museum itself. It was a mill, loads of people worked here on machines. Some of the machines are still there, with photographs and signs to explain more. I did like a work of art at the end of the building, by the door, by the late Skelton Rainey. He was able to take some of the hugely heavy industrial cog wheels and mount them on a wall piece. Taken from their mechanical place and rearranged they are now a striking tribute to the people who must have felt like cogs in the giant machine here.

I must confess that the site is impressive, and its preservation was therefore very worthwhile. The building is a great looming thing, accompanied by a sky-scraping red brick chimney. The complex is now offices, the museum, the Flax Art Gallery, Yarns Bistro restaurant, a huge duck pond, a theatre and loads of car parking spaces.

Do check out the square outside. It is peppered with large sculptures. My favourite was a cow, painted by the same Skelton Rainey with local scenes, including the mill itself.
