Travel and accommodation
If you are coming from further afield and would like to make a weekend of it, there’s the friendly Spinning Mill B&B in the village famed for its homemade cake. A stone’s throw away, there’s the Olive Branch with lovely pennine views. The Three Acres in Shelley is also a fantastic option and is just a few miles from Slaithwaite.
If you fancy leaving the car at home on the day, you can get the train to Slaithwaite and the station is just a couple of minutes walk away. There are regular connections to Manchester and Leeds. Parking will probably be quite tight around the mill so we would recommend trying the public car parks in the village.
