Queen Street Mill Textile Museum

On the outskirts of Burnley - a town once dominated by the textile industry, lies Harle Syke, the home of Queen Street Mill, the last surviving, operational steam powered weaving mill in the world. Owned by a workers co-operative “The Queen Street Manufacturing Company” the mill is a time capsule of the late Victorian age, which produced cloth using Victorian steam driven power looms until its closure in 1982.

Google is great, so they tell us, but sometimes what you’re looking for is on page 756 so to make life a little easier we have listed a few web sites that we have found useful or interesting. Just click on the web address and you will be whisked away - don’t forget to come back though. If you can recommend a web site let us know and we will add it to the list..

Our Story

Cue the whirring of dial-up modems, Microsoft Frontpage and an exceptionally slow PC. It's 2000 and the first version of Historic UK is uploaded to the internet, the first website of its kind dedicated to the history and heritage of Britain. But this wasn't just any old history website...

Historic UK's vision was to bring history to life, and to do so it needed to be two websites in one. The first section of the website was called the Historic Accommodation Guide, a collection of castle hotels, historic holiday cottages and characterful hotels designed to stir the imagination and allow history lovers to stay in some of the most historic buildings in the country.

The second section of the website was the History Magazine, a monthly online publication featuring all of those weird, gruesome and interesting bits of history that were often left out of the school curriculum. From great British eccentrics to the inventor of the loo, we like to think of our articles as a 'Horrible Histories for Adults'!

Starting as a team of two, it was soon obviously that the scale and scope of the website required some extra manpower and the company slowly grew to a team of a six.

Fast forward to 2009 and it was decided that for Historic UK's 10th anniversary that it would be getting a nifty little redesign. Introducing a brand new search engine for our Accommodation Guide and the ability to filter our history articles by type. Now you can research the history and, perhaps, stay where that history was made.
