What a hidden gem. Lovely trip and well worth a visit, I visited with my elderly father who managed to get upstairs. He was so glad he did. The volunteers were superb and very knowledgable. Can't wait to go back and see the mill working producing flour. The sign for the no dogs made us smile. Wonderful trip out. Got... More

Greated by national trust volunteers, all very pleasant and chatty. We were offered a guided tour or could feel free to self guide. We opted for the guided tour of the two display rooms, even though the place was small the guide was very informative and thorough. Well worth the visit and we learnt a lot

Stopped by after visiting Hardwick Hall. Thanks to enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff, now understand the milling process and know the difference between a hodder, a shoe and an eye. Don't miss this place!_3

Take a step into the past in this small but very interesting working mill. Just the place to spend a little time wandering around and seeing how things used to be. Not suitable for disabled as the space is very limited

We live a short distance, walking, from the Mill. We ventured out for a quick afternoon out, and once we got into the mill, I was pleasantly surprised! The staff were very friendly, and one of the ladies were kind enough to give us a quick tour, with some very informative knowledge. Our kids were able to help with lifting... More

Called to look at the mill after being to hardwick hall. The guide gave us a brief history if the mill and how it worked and still works. Only a small mill take 10 mins to view so think before going as for a family of 4 and a extra adult it cost us £20. Would be better if in... More

We stopped here as our three year old is obsessed with water wheels. What a delight! We enjoyed a fantastic guided tour around this beautiful working flour mill, learning about the milling and separating process. Our three year old helped to pull a bag of flour up from the ground floor to the first floor of the mill using a... More
