Do you have a shop on site and daily tours?

Yes we sure do!  We have full mill tours now available or please feel free to come along and browse our mill shops.  Well, we call them shops but really they are cool and quirky spaces in our mill yard.  Upcycled container, caravan and canvas tents - we ain't messing when it comes to re-use.

If you wish to book at tour, then you can click here or if you want to just visit our shop spaces then please feel free to pop along anytime between 10am-7pm Mon-Fri and 10am-3pm Sat (except for Pop Up Event Dates above), someone will be here to help.  Please note all tours ideally should be booked in advance, as we cannot always guarantee a tour on the day of your arrival.


What if I want to pick up an order?

We are open for all online orders that have selected the pick up option and for anyone who needs helps with measuring up we are here with our measuring tapes in hand! 


Do you have any visiting events happening at the mill?

Check out our Black Canvas page for all the deets on the events we are planning this summer, its a first for us and we are totally open to suggestions.  As the title says, its a Blank Canvas.... who knows what we might do!
