Advertised as paper mill, what? Where? Its a room with some old machines in it, and when the staff are there they show you how to make a piece of paper. That's it.

we found this quite educational and learnt things that we did not know about paper, our son tried to make paper and it held his attention for a while

More time taken for letting children to make paper and lower tables for little one to try and more detail

The paper mill was a room the size of your lounge at home with a few machines and a bloke showing the process of making paper, for children as wookey is advertised this is BORING!

The Paper making demonstration is very good but this does not make a mill. We were informed that actual paper production ceased here in 2007!.

The hands on demonstration was great for children to participate and the video showing you the history was very informative, however was expecting to see a more machinery etc iin the building. Very quick walk through

I really liked going to wookey hole and the paper mill. I enjoyed making paper and pressing a handprint into the sludge. Very good activity within Wookey Hole

Very interesting to watch process.Children got the chance to try making paper and doing handprints although they can't dry them out so not able to take home.The children weren't bothered about that though,they enjoyed getting hands wet!

Was quite interesting but again very crowded so we could not get a full appreciation of the demonstration and there was also the added attraction of that smell of chips !!

I found the history of the mill very interesting & the kids get a chance to have a go at making paper from old cloth. Educational & fun.
