What will you see at Audlem Mill?
Ground floor -
Gifts, canal guides and books set amongst the hoppers and chutes of the mill building. You will find gifts for all the family for most occasions, as well as canal souvenirs and gifts, and probably the best selection of canal books in the country (over 400 titles). There are also original canal paintings, from both established and lesser known waterway artists, and other works from local artists.
First floor -
Needlework and related crafts, with kits (e.g. cross stitch, goldwork, whitework, tapestry), a small selection of fabrics for the various crafts, the full ranges of DMC and Anchor embroidery threads, specialist threads, knitting yarns and needles, and many other needlework and haberdashery items.
We have the full Abacus Designs range of nearly 200 cross stitch kits (of which about half are of canal and waterway subjects), and also canal related kits from other designers, including canal maps.
