Visit Us

Come take a look around.

Leigh Hackspace is located inside Leigh Spinners Mill, a Grade II* listed former cotton spinning mill, restored by Leigh Building Preservation Trust and now hosting multiple business and community projects.

We operate drop-in open tours on Saturday afternoons from 12 pm to 1 pm.

Tours at other times can be arranged by contacting us, while most members are local please try to give a day or two notice beforehand so we can arrange for someone to meet you.

Travelling by car

Leigh Spinners Mill is located at the end of Park Road, use the postcode WN7 2LB for your satnav.

Car Parking

The mill has a large gravel public car park and additional overflow areas. Parking is free but may become busy during popular times. The car park is open from 8 am until 10 pm, if you are visiting outside of these hours then it is recommended you park elsewhere. Please, do not park on Park Lane, as this is residents-only parking.

Travelling by bike

The mill does have a cycle rack outside the main entry to Mill 2, but we have more than enough space to store your bike in the hackspace itself. Cyclists may find it easier to approach the mill via the Bridgewater Canal and cross over towards the mill at Butts Bridge, which will avoid lots of relatively busy roads in the area.
