Bottoms Mill Shop

Gordon Riggs Bottoms Mill Shop is situated opposite our Todmorden store and is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for items for your home, the perfect gift or an item of clothing. We even have a large hardware department for your all your DIY needs. We stock big names like Regatta, Hallmark and Yankee Candle all year round and are a great place to visit in conjunction with the Cotton Weavers Cafe located onsite, upstairs and garden centre across the road.

Bottoms Mill was established originally as a cotton mill in 1853. It was successfully run for 60+ years by William Dugdale and John Mills, and later by the Dugdale family. In 1919 the Mill was purchased by the Cockcroft family and continued as a Mule Spinning and Weaving Mill until the Second World War, during which time it was used to store ammunition. After the war the weaving side of the business continued until the 1990’s and then on a much smaller scale until Gordon Rigg bought the mill in 2002, making it one of the last local Mills to cease trading as a Cotton Mill. Many of the original features of the working mill can still be seen today.
