Enjoy the mill 

Enjoy your day with us: from feeding the ducks with our special food and bug-hunting, starting a working water wheel and trying out the pedal powered fulling stocks to tucking in to naughty scone with your picnic, there's plenty of fun in and around the water at the mill. Check out the events too.
