Situated in Eccleston near Chorley, Bygone Times is a large historic mill full of a fascinating variety of stalls selling antiques, vintage and collectible items.

Main entrance to Bygone Times Built in 1845 as a cotton mill, it has enjoyed a varied history but continued to produce textiles in the 1980s, including parachutes during the second world war. Complete with ghosts, Grove Mill began to develop into the large emporium  it is today, with it’s own Titanic and War museum, arcade of old slot machines, and excellent value cafe.
