I visited The Silk Mill today and it has a lot going for it but it's one of those places that is crying out for more to be done. The buildings are lovely and it's a scenic spot full of atmosphere and whilst I hate over-done places this could just do with a bit more oomph. The crystal-clear waters, the grounds (not huge), the trout, and the wonderful old machinery were well worth the trip - but the self-service eatery, the lack-lustre seating area, the shop with rather over-priced goods (eg the £50 cushion reduced to £20 that still seemed expensive) let the trip down. But Whitchurch is a nice little town and looking round it, the tour around The Silk Mill and lunch in a nearby pub filled 4/5 hours.
