Trustees Needed: Coldharbour Mill Trust (Devon)

Established 1982 in an 18th century former spinning mill, the Coldharbour Mill Working Wool Museum in Devon is now seeking four new Trustees that can commit to twelve board meetings per year plus committee/working party meetings as required.

Visitors to the museum see yarn and textile production on vintage machinery and also the factory’s original power sources. A recent substantive HLF grant kick-started an ambitious long-term Development Plan, which aims to establish the museum as the premier textile heritage centre in the south west.
