Cobweb Time at the mill

The leaves are falling, the nights are drawing in, there are cobwebs visible almost every morning and it’s cobweb time again at Heage windmill when we close for the rest of season and give our hard-working volunteers a chance to have a rest – until next Easter at least!

It has become traditional at Heage windmill to make a large cobweb (out of elastic), the size of which is determined by the number of ‘spinners’ who come along and help produce ‘the web of the year’, under the guidance of our master spinner, Lynn Allen. This year we are spinning starting at 12.00 noon on Sunday 28th October and invite anyone who would like to try their hand to come and join us make the biggest web ever! The mill will then be closed from 4.00 pm for our normal weekend opening until next Easter.

However, as part of the Derwent Valley Discovery Days we have arranged a special opening on Wednesday, October 31st, when we will be open for tours from 10.00 am until 3.00 pm- just something special!

We will of course also be open for Santa Day on 2nd of December and the man in red will arrive at 11.00 and be with us until 3.00 pm. More on this later….
