A museum of the Leeds milling industry set in a former mill on an island in the River Aire.

Thwaite at 30


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!
