Interesting example of industrial archeology. The guides are very knowledgable, I happen to know quite a bit about the history of milling and I was impressed by the way the information was presented by them. A bit of a poor relation in National Trust terms for the area but I would recommend a visit if you are anywhere near.

This place is only open at weekends and for a limited time but is well worth a visit. There is only limited parking.

A superbly preserved exhibition. It doesn't take long, but it is well worth a stop especially when the weather isn't being very helpful.

The best advice I can give is stop here and have a look at the outside , it's not open very often and when it is the tours are a little stuffy, and a bit child unfriendly. However certainly a interesting and worthwhile project it's restoration. Will easy kill a... More

I have often driven past the mill & found it closed (which is a huge shame), so when I saw it open I had to pull in for a visit. I had memories of visiting the mill as a child, and I wasn't disappointed to return as an adult. The mill tour was 'continuous', in that as visitors arrived they... More

Very small, but still in working order. The staff were knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the site. Tour is about 45 minutes and guided, tours start about every 15 minutes or so. Only £5.50 without a national trust membership so is good value. There are no toilets, cafe or shop on site.

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!
