Started by the Abakhan family in the late forties as a rug weaving business, Abakhan has now been trading for almost 60 years and we pride ourselves on offering a vast range of Fabrics, Yarns, Crafts, Sewing Accessories and Haberdashery.
As well as a major retail outlet, this site is also a site of considerable local historic interest. The company has taken great care to preserve the old works buildings resulting in the presentation of an award by the Prince of Wales for the sympathetic restoration of the buildings.
Our newly refurbished Café now offers indoor and outdoor seating for up to 150 people. We have restored the Original Mill Race and have a lovely landscaped courtyard and garden area where you can sit, relax and enjoy one of our many hot/cold drinks, sandwiches, soup, roast dinner, a slice of homemade cake or a delicious scone!
