Location Mid Devon
Job Information

Coldharbour Wool

Based in Uffculme, Devon, Coldharbour Mill is a late 18th century Grade II* listed building, built as a spinning factory by Fox Brothers, a very rare surviving example of its kind and unique in the South West – testament to the cloth trade that was the mainstay of the economy of the region (and the country) for centuries before, during and after the Industrial Revolution.  A Museum since 1982, retaining working examples of textile machinery, water and steam power, this small independent charity works to preserve a site of great historic and architectural value, and actively engage the public with the heritage of the woollen industry.

The Mill is entering a new chapter in its life, with exciting projects both underway and planned for the next few years.  This will bring both challenges and opportunities and so we are looking for Trustees with an appetite to be involved in this exciting journey.  You will be joining an active and involved Board who have a shared vision for the future of the Mill, supporting it to become a centre for learning about our industrial heritage and the production of wool.  With a small but dynamic staff team and a loyal band of volunteers, we are ready for the journey ahead.

We aim to increase visitor numbers through  innovative projects such as:

  • the transformation of the mill meadow into a countryside park
  • the development of alternative energy sources
  • the increased production of wool
  • extending and improving our exhibits
