Join in the National Mills Weekend celebrations at Bateman’s Park Mill, one of the only working water mills in the area. Park Mill was beloved by Kipling and features in stories he wrote at Bateman's. Watch milling in action and meet our friendly guides to learn more about its history. Pick up a re-printed Park Mill guide for a £2 donation. Sunday 12th May 2pm–3pm. Our Millers will be milling grain from 2pm.
