Queen Street Mill is a massively important part of England's heritage, and because of its role in the industrial revolution, is of global significance. Its loss, if it is allowed to happen, would be both tragic and shameful.

I absolutely love this museum, there isn't another like it in the country. I've been here often when visiting friends in the north west and it would be a tragedy to lose it.

It is not sad that Queen Street Mill has closed, it is disgraceful and shortsighted. People pay to see it so do not neglect it, instead invest in it, promote it and generate enough income to keep it open and show the world the pride of Lancashire's heritage. In Yorkshire a whole town has been revitalised by its woollen mill. Saltaire is on the tourist trail to the Yorkshire Dales and we have the Pendle Hill Country and are a stop on the way to the Lakes. East Lancashire into Employment, a charity that supports disabled artists and craftspeople are based in the Mill's Business Units and they too have to leave at Christmas because the building is being closed down. So 14 businesses run by disabled people in a safe environment will probably have to close as well as ELE itself leaving to a site unknown at the moment

It is the last remaining steam run engine in the WORLD! This must attract tourists from all over the world, if there was a charge to visit the mill surely this would it going.

this is our heritage and the bean counters and bottom liners at LCC county hall are shortsighted if not blind to why it should be kept open. Shame on them

My Grandma and my Aunty Jane worked there. I can remember going to meet my Aunty Jane from work by the sheds.
