Bourne Mill

Bourne Road
Colchester
Essex
CO2 8RT

Bourne Mill was built in the late Elizabethan period (1591) as a banqueting hall and fishing lodge, and has had a varied life as different types of mill since then.

After its initial use as a fishing lodge, around 1640 it was converted to a fulling mill (fulling is a process in cloth manufacture).

After this it was converted to a corn mill around 1840 and continued working right up until the 1930s.

The Mill has a working waterwheel and is set in beautiful, peaceful grounds, where the whole family can have fun.

There is a pond, wetlands and wooded areas which are home to all sorts of wildlife such as bats, waterfowl, beetles and bugs!

Facilities:

  • Cafe
  • Gift Shop
  • Toilets
  • Limited on-site parking (on street available nearby)
  • Pond dipping equipment
  • Garden Games


Dog are welcome to Bourne Mill provided they are on a lead, and group visits are welcome as along as they are pre-booked.

Bourne Mill is run by the National Trust
