The exhibition display case in the foyer has been removed. The panelling will remain, creating a modern display case and a family activities area too.
Whitchurch Silk Mill Conservation
Mountjoy has been appointed to undertake the conservation, extension, repair and new build works to Whitchurch Silk Mill in Hampshire. The Silk Mill is a Grade II* listed textile watermill built in 1815 on the River Test in the small Hampshire town of Whitchurch. It is one of only four working silk mills in the country and the only one open to visitors.
The project entitled “Preserving the Fabric” aims to transform Whitchurch Silk Mill into a self-sustaining industrial heritage site. The conservation works include repairs to the external walls, windows, doors and roof of the Mill Building.
