Over 40 people enjoyed a powerpoint presentation by our own, Frank Walsh, in the 15th century Cruck Barn, at the Pendle Heritage Centre; followed by a riverside walk up to Higherford Mill led by Anthony Pilling ,a descendant of Pilling and son, Loom Makers, of Colne. He then gave us a detailed guided tour of the mill itself.

Donations on the day raised £66 for The Friends of Pendle Heritage. A great effort all round.
