The Packing Rooms

The Packing Rooms

After opening in 1891, the early success of the Mill spurred the need for improved packing and distribution facilities. The filling of a void between the original building and the Piesse buildings next door was the logical move for the new Packing Rooms. In here augers and the latest semi-automated bagging machines would fill the flour sacks ahead of their passage down the chute to the transport wagons below.

The chute to the transport wagons can still be seen in our hotel foyer and it is above this that our Packing Rooms are located. All of the Packing Rooms bear hallmarks to the equipment used in these rooms when the Mill was operational including exposed gantry-arms and pulley wheels.  Some Packing Rooms have an interior view over the stunning central atrium with the steam boiler and others feature a lovely north-eastern aspect to capture the early morning sunrise. The Packing Rooms feature our most generous floorspace and can be equipped with a second, rollaway bed to accommodate an additional person.

The rooms are all different to varying degrees by virtue of the found condition. Where possible the rooms have exposed remnant machinery and original timber structure. Elements such as inset carpets and full height curtains soften the industrial shell. New elements in the rooms are designed to complement the existing material textures adding amenity without clutter. All in-room furniture has been bespoke designed and locally craft manufactured.
