Why not try the new Dean Clough family trail? This free trail takes approximately 1 hour to complete and the clues lead you across the Dean Clough site (both inside and out). On your travels you will get to see the huge Dean Clough Lego model and you'll be tested to see if you can walk along the old railway tracks, amongst many things.
There are also cafes, bars and restaurants at Dean Clough so you can combine doing the trail with having a bite to eat or something to drink.
Check out our website www.deanclough.com for opening times and what else there is to see and do at Dean Clough. The trail leaflets are available from Main Reception in D Mill.
