Dunkirk Mill
Waterwheel by James Ferrabee and Co

near Nailsworth, Gloucestershire

  • Small museum in a large former woollen mill. A large waterwheel is operated for brief periods on open days, and this is used to drive a fulling mill by J. and H. Ferrabee and a mid 19th century teasle raising gig. The waterwheel was originally made by James Ferrabee and Co in 1855. There is also an early mechanical cloth shearing machine on display, together with a number of other exhibits, including a large working model of a fulling mill.
  • It is important to check the website for the limited dates and times of opening. Usually open on the same day as the nearby Gigg Mill, Nailsworth
