Coldharbour Mill Museum
Coldharbour Mill in the Mid Devon village of Uffcumbe is one of the oldest operational woollen mills in the country. Visitors can visit the museum on days when crafts people are using the machinery to produce traditional textiles, beautiful knitting yarn and hand woven rugs.
Coldharbour Mill was originally owned by the Fox family during the Industrial Revolution and today the site occupies 12 acres full of interesting exhibiits, original equipment and 10 acres of wetland. Visitors can see a working 18th century water wheel - the biggest breast-shot waterwheel still in operation in the UK.
