Mossley Industrial Heritage Centre

Coordinates: 53°30′54″N 2°02′24″W / 53.515°N 2.040°W / 53.515; -2.040 The Mossley Industrial Heritage Centre records the history of the cotton industry in Mossley, in Greater Manchester, England.

Housed in a part of the former Longlands cotton waste mill, the centre was created as a collaboration between the Emmaus Mossley site and the Mossley Civic Society, after Emmaus purchased the site in 1996. The building, still called Longlands Mill, also houses the Emmaus charity second-hand store.

After Emmaus first purchased the site, former mill workers visited the building and provided the impetus to collect the photographs and artifacts on display.
