You will oversee finances, the building and facilities and manage 15 part-time staff.

Farfield Mill is the only place in the Park where you can see and feel how the industrial revolution grew up in rural areas, transforming the life of the small rural towns in the Pennines like Sedbergh. We started the Farfield Mill project with a public meeting on 17 November 1992.

Our purpose was to preserve the building, which was one of the most important historic woollen mills in West Yorkshire. By the end of the century we had managed to become the owners of the building and to raise sufficient funds to restore the lower three floors, the top floor was finished later. We opened as a visitor centre in 2001 and as we approach our 25th anniversary the Mill is now home to a thriving community of craft businesses, including weavers, artists, quilters, jewellers, and felt makers The mill has a café, a weaving operation, a heritage floor presenting the history of the mill and of the culture of wool going back centuries in this part of Yorkshire, 3 exhibition galleries, a shop, and an area where volunteer weavers, lace makers and rag- ruggers regularly demonstrate these traditional skills to our visitors.
