An unexpected find

We did not know about this Mill but stumbled upon it as our Hotel was close by. It is set in a lovely area. The shops are varied and unique. We had lunch there which was spot on.

We went late in the day and so a lot of things were shut, but we went in the shop which had some very nice items in it and large enough for a nice browse.

Having been holidaying in Derbyshire for many years, we have visited this mill and craft centre countless times. The one thing I would say is it isn't as good as it used to be - even the entrance from the carpark looks tired! Stonemasons and Blacksmiths both very good and you can see the skill involved in producing such great... More

A brilliant place for anyone with an interest in food, machinery or social/industrial history - never seen anything else quite like it. The setting is idyllic too, and there's a great cafe, artisan workshops and tasteful gift shop on site. The fully working flour mill is powered by the waters of the river Wye and is a great way to...

It was raining and this craft centre was just a few minutes away from our where we were staying, so thought we'd pop in. There was a working forge, you could book a session for yourself. Very friendly couple of chaps working there. Also some beautiful glass being made along with a large craft shop and a working flour mill... More

Old industrial machinery like this is a fascination for me; all too often we lose the link between what we eat and how it is produced and this mill serves as a reminder of how hard our daily bread was won. The whole place has a wonderful old world charm about it, although it is hard to believe that it... More

Interesting Flour Mill Museum which still produces wholemeal flour for purchase (could do with a bit of refurbishment but is a charitable trust dependent on visitors). Surrounded by some interesting gift and craft shops and a fabulous cafe!

We stopped at this place primarily for something to eat but with the word Craft in the title, it was a magnet for my wife. The car park is large and was reasonably busy on our visit. The short walk to the Mill was down a lovely path. We first encounter the blacksmith, busy in soaring temperatures. A lovely jewellery... More

This old flour mill has become our main reason to travel down from Yorkshire at least twice a year. A wide range of flour and cereals, alongside a fast, deep diverted stream, which powers the old machinery and provides a pleasant place to pass on the way from the rear car park. A café, gift shop, and a chance to... More

We visited Greehalgh Glass at the Mill.The glass art is beautiful,a lot based on the tree of life. I would love to have been able to take a piece home but luggage constraints stop me. I did buy a small plate that will be easy to keep safe,as well as some jewellery. If you love glass you will be blown... More
