Welcome to the Venue, which is situated here in Bowers Mill Barkisland.
Bowers Mill was built in the 18th century as water powered Fulling Mill, Corn Mill and finally a Woollen Mill. Textile manufacture was started by two brothers Joseph & Samuel Taylor and J & S Taylor occupied the Mill from 1882 until they moved their premises in 1991.
All the processes to produce cloth were carried out here in the Mill by Taylors; blending, spinning, weaving, scouring, dyeing and finishing. A portrait of Joseph proudly sits behind the bar in our main event space.
