WHITCHURCH SILK MILL was built on the River Test in Hampshire in 1800, during the reign of King George III. Silk has been woven here since the 1820/1830s.

Now a working museum open to the public, the mill produces high quality silks to order for theatrical costume, interior designers and historic houses.
