Heritage Open Days: Clyston Mill

As part of Heritage Open Days, visit this historic watermill in Broadclyst village on the Killerton estate.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Step back in time to discover how the mill harnessed the power of water to grind the farmer’s grain.

Steeped in history, explore the mill and see how the leat would power the watermill. Thanks to some exciting conservation work, the wheel will be turning for the first time since 2019!

Parking is available in Victory Hall car park in the centre of Broadclyst Village. Please follow the signs from the car park, towards the church and through the church yard to the mill.

As part of Heritage Open Days, the mill is open to all visitors on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 6-15 September. Entry is free for all visitors during this time.
