The Pinhole Studio is a narrowboat which has been converted into a working darkroom and a camera obscura so that visitors can experience what it is like to be inside a camera. You are invited onboard to view a display of Pinhole photographs and objects that help map out the history of photography. The images are based primarily upon New Mills and the wider High Peak area with a focus upon the areas historic links to manufacturing and industry.
