Mill Green Museum and Mill

Mill Green

The museum is housed in the former Miller's house, dating back to the 16th century. There are three galleries. Two house local artefacts from Roman times to the present day, while the third features special exhibitions which change regularly. There are craft demonstrations and special events during summer weekends and staff are on hand to help with your enquiries and research.

There is also a working, fully restored, eighteenth century watermill adjacent to the museum. The Mill was in regular use grinding corn grown by local farmers until 1911 when competition from larger mills forced its closure. A full restoration was carried out between 1979 and 1986 and it's now one of the few remaining water-powered corn mills still producing flour. Flour milled here is supplied to a local bakery who use it to produce their Mill Green loaf. Flour is also available to buy from the Mill in six different sizes. Milling times are subject to demand for flour and weather conditions.

The Water Mill is especially worth visiting on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sunday when the miller is working the machinery and can show visitors how the flour is made.
