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!

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

Other NT properties in the area are Hare Hill and Styal Mill. From the outside looks really small but is actually 4 floors of which you visit 3 of... More

If you have any interest in historic, water driven machinery then a visit to the mill will definitely not disappoint. You will get a guided tour given by a volunteer during which you will learn about why it was built, by whom and its changing fortunes over the years. You will see all three water wheels in action (Yes three)... More
