WHITCHURCH SILK MILL
The oldest silk mill in the UK is located just 10 minutes from The White Hart inn. Still in its original building, Whitchurch Silk Mill is a Georgian water mill that weaves silk using 19th century machinery. The Mill still creates high quality silks for theatrical costumes, interior designers and historic houses.
Visitors can view the beautiful silk fabrics, learn about the mill and Victorian machinery, and get involved in the interactive exhibits and experiences. Set by the beautiful River Test, there’s also a beautiful tea room, for lunch and refreshments, and a shop where you can purchase silk products from The Mill.
