Located on the canal side at Clarence Mill, Bollington Discovery Centre brings together the history of this and other great mills of Bollington, the Macclesfield Canal and shows their place and importance to the town.

Here you will find the story of Bollington, from an agricultural backwater in the Macclesfield Forest, to the realisation of the use of its streams and rivers to power the cotton mills that made the town what it is today. King cotton may have gone but fortunately several of our mills survive, finding new and valuable uses in the modern era.

Opening Times: Wednesday 1.30pm - 4pm. Saturday and Sunday: 11am - 4pm

Closed 20th December - 3rd January.
