Northwest Computer Museum will be based at Spinners Mills, Park Lane in Leigh.
Leigh Spinners Mills was originally set up as a cotton spinning mill just before the First World War, in 1913. As a company we therefore have a very long association with textiles, building our name on quality and sound good value.
“The museum is all about the history of technology, I thought where is the best place to open a museum, but in a building with so much history of technology over the last 100 years”
We was hoping to be opened on 1st August, but unfortunately, the fire department found it nessaccary to close the Mills and to the 40 businesses already in there due to inadequate second fire exit. The board have successfully have receive the funding to get the second staircase and more importantly a second fire escape to make sure our customers are safe when they come to visit us and also other organisations in the Mills.
