I had not been hear for many years. I was impressed with the improvements and enjoyed the personal explanation of the machines. It is nice that ex mill workers are involved and can relate and bring alive the experiences.

Verdant works gives a great insite into mill working back in the day. Very informative and great attention to detail. I’ve also been to concerts in the High Mill and the acoustics are just fabulous. Highly recommended!

Within walking distance of city centre and well sign posted. See the penquins along the way and maybe stroll through the University Campus.
