Our new online exhibition looks at the history of Thwaite Watermill from the 1700s right up to the present day. In 1990 Thwaite opened as a museum and we continue to offer a range of activities, events and facilities inspired by our industrial past. The exhibition also features our much loved resident moggy, Milly the mill cat!
