Queen Street Mill Textile Museum

Queen Street, Harle Syke Burnley, Lancashire, BB10 2HX

Queen Street Mill Museum's special open days start from Saturday 7 July 2018

Structural engineering experts have said the 115 feet (35 metres) high chimney at Queen Street Mill is in need of strengthening work following a detailed inspection. To allow the work to take place, part of the building has to be cordoned off for health and safety reasons. Visitors will still be able to visit the weaving shed when the museum does reopen to the public on special dates this season including:

  • 7 July to coincide with the revived Briercliffe Festival
  • 11 August
  • 8 and 15 September (as part of the Heritage Open Days)
  • 13 October.

There will be free access to the museum on these special days.

The number of days the building will reopen this year has been limited to ensure work can be undertaken as quickly as possible. However, we would welcome pre booked guided tours Monday to Friday. For more information please contact the site on 01282 412555 or email queenstreetmill@lancashire.gov.uk to discuss dates and charges.

Schools are still welcome to book all learning sessions.

Negotiations remain underway in the long term to identify a new operator.
