Giant Cobweb at Heage Windmill

It’s Cobweb time at the mill!

The leaves are falling, the nights are drawing in and there are cobwebs visible almost every morning. And it’s cobweb time again at Heage windmill when we close for the rest of the season and give our hard-working volunteers a chance to have a rest – until next Easter at least!

It has become traditional at Heage windmill to make a large cobweb (out of elastic), the size of which is determined by the number of ‘spinners’ who come along and help produce ‘the web of the year, under the guidance of our master spinner, Lynn Allen. This year we are starting spinning at 12 noon on Sunday 31st October and invite anyone who would like to try their hand to come and join us to make the biggest web ever! The mill will then be closed from 4pm for our normal weekend opening until next Easter. However, the last tour will be no later than 3.30pm.
