Small NT property, but a bit like the TARDIS there's more than you think in this waterpowered mill. It's only open 3 afternoons a week April to beg. October

Pleasantly surprised when arrived at this delightful roadside location.The guides were very welcoming on our arrival and eager to show us the tour of the mill.Very impressed by the whole tour and it's restoration . Lovely to see the water wheels in action and worth a visit especially if you have a limited amount of time .

Available by guided tour only & it was highly informative & enjoyable. Car parking is minimal & there is no cafe, shop or public toilet on site. If you've been to Little Moreton Hall or Quarry Bank Mill you could easily swing past & it's well worth a visit. Enjoy!

We were passing Nether Alderley Mill and were lucky to make it onto their last tour of the day, as you can't just wander around the mill as it is too small for lots of people. Having seen it in the National Trust book I was suprised it was right by the road side and thought it might be a... More

If you have any interest in historic, water driven machinery then a visit to the mill will definitely not disappoint.

You will see all three water wheels in action (Yes three)... More

This is a National Trust Property, so entry is free if you are a member. It opens afternoons at the weekend and also one afternoon during the week (check web site for details) and you can go round guided by a NT volunteer. Recently it reopened following restoration work on the roof. The earliest reference to the corn mill is... More
