Enter the world of the Victorian Miller! Experience living history as you explore this amazing working watermill, meet the millers and follow the journey from grain to freshly milled flour.
This fascinating,family-friendly, fully restored and working water mill, a registered museum, is open daily to the public from late March until the end of October. Watch the giant waterwheel, the massive millstones and the many cogs and wheels turn as locally grown wheat is ground into high-quality wholegrain flour. Dress as a Victorian in the Miller’s Cottage and learn about life at Heatherslaw in the 19th century. Children can take the Junior Miller’s Quiz, follow the mouse trail and, on selected days in school holidays, get messy with baking in the Dough Zone.
With a range of exhibits, including some interactive, visitors of all ages can easily spend an hour or two in this small, friendly mill. Admission charges are very modest making the whole experience excellent value for money.
Adjoining the mill there is a gift shop where mill produce can be purchased, and a tearoom specialising in home baking using the mill’s flours and cereals.
