Mappery For the love of maps

Bobbin Mills

Dave Lovell has been very active combing through his photo library (you’ll see several more from him over the next few weeks), he may even win a prize for his contributions, but then again he may not 🙂

“On the wall at Stott Mill Bobbin Park Nestled on the shores of Lake Windermere in Cumbria, this extensive working mill produced literally millions of wooden bobbins vital to the Lancashire spinning and weaving industries. It is the only working bobbin mill left in the Lake District today.”

So be honest, who knew about bobbin mills?
