Farfield Mill

Who benefits

Farfield Mill provides space for local artists and craftspeople at affordable rents, clusters artists together to increase their potential customers, contributes about £150,000 a year to the creative economy of the Sedbergh Area and has consistently provided employment in the area for over 200 years.


Farfield Mill runs a variety of activities that support the development of craft livelihoods and craft skills with over 20 rentable studios at present.

Courses are run throughout the year, often taught by tenant craftspeople. At holiday times fun try-out sessions are put on for children and Farfield Mill intends to grow the provision of courses for all ages.

Farfield Mill now has a Somet loom capable of producing large runs of cloth. The weaving business started in 2002 based around weaving on commission.


As a significant visitor attraction, Farfield Mill is a key part of the rural and visitor economy of Sedbergh and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is one of the few remaining heritage parts of the UK wool industry, promoting wool and wool products.


The heritage display has not changed since the redeveloped of Farfield Mill. Visitors will benefit from a renewed floor with new displays, but more importantly a dynamic space that can be refreshed regularly to create a heritage attraction fit for the 21st century.
