Ladies of Noyna Inner Wheel visited Barnoldwick’s Bancroft Mill to be photographed alongside a wheel for an area competition.

They posed in front of the Bancroft flywheel which is 16 feet in diameter and weighs 30 tons.

It was the Colne-based group’s first visit to the museum and they left with a variety of Bancroft-woven teatowels as souvenirs.

Bancroft Mill steaming resumes on Sunday, March 16, when entertainment will be provided by The Lancashire Society.
