Farfield Mill by Graeme DougalSituated on the banks of the River Clough, Farfield Mill is a typical 4 storey stone mill of Victorian times. Built in 1837, it was the last such textile mill to operate in Sedbergh, closing its doors in 1992.

The building's 18,000 square feet are restored and open to visitors. On view are Farfield Mill looms by Graeme DougalDobcross looms, an 1896 turbine, and a heritage exhibition on the Yorkshire Dales woollen industry. Working potters, knitters, and wood sculpturers have studios on site. The arts and crafts gallery has changing exhibitions, and various workshops are presented.

There are riverside walks from the mill, which is set in an attractive dale with fells on either side.
