Stott Park Bobbin mill is a traditional Lakeland bobbin mill that utilised the surrounding woodland to produce a variety of wooden objects. I visited the mill whilst it was still in operation about 1968 to collect an order of wooden bobbins for a small textile mill in Lancashire. Later I interviewed Mr J Ivision the then owner, that oral history recording is held by the North West Sound Archive in their collections at Clitheroe. http:/​/​www.​nwsoundarchive.​co.​uk/​default.​aspx
The mill is now preserved by English Heritage and is near the village of Finsthwaite, close to Windermere.
