Queen Street Mill is a former weaving mill in Harle Syke, a suburb to the northeast of Burnley, Lancashire, that is a Grade I listed building. It now operates as a museum and cafe. Currently open for public tours between April and November. Over winter the café is open on Wednesdays. It is also viewable with private bookings.
The mill was built in 1894 for the Queen Street Manufacturing Company. It closed on 12 March 1982 and was mothballed, but was subsequently taken over by Burnley Borough Council and maintained as a museum. In the 1990s ownership passed to Lancashire Museums. Unique in being the world’s only surviving operational steam-driven weaving shed, it received an Engineering Heritage Award in November 2010.
Previously open to visitors and offering weaving demonstrations, the museum closed in September 2016 (except for pre-booked school parties). In April 2018 Lancashire County Council announced that the museum, along with Helmshore Mills Textile Museum and the Judges Lodgings in Lancaster, would reopen three days a week. The mill again produced cloth as a result of the demonstrations, and the machinery is deemed a collection of national importance.
