Virtual Panoramic Tour

IMPORTANT: This Virtual Tour requires Flash Player to be installed on your device; this is being phased out and will not be supported after the end of 2020. As a result, the latest versions of most browsers are unable to access this tour. We do not know whether PanoramaStudios are able to modify the tour for it to be available in 2021.

Panorama Studio has produced an amazing virtual tour. From the comfort of your chair, you can look around the mill; you can even look at the floor and ceiling, if you really want to! There are lots of "hot spots" for you to click on to provide more information about the mill, its machinery, and some of the exhibits on display. Here are some screen shots, although 2D can hardly do it justice. Click on any image to take the tour.
