  • Lovely old Mill which has the connection to Tolkien,because he lived close by for a while! Much of the area was used by him to help create middle earth. Pity in some ways that the weather was too nice and so therefore didn't get to see the mill and millers working, however very pleasant and knowledgeable staff who gave a very good explanation of the mill and it's history!
  • Attended the very small market in the courtyard. There were just a few stalls selling good food and drinks. Despite our diss appointment with the size of courtyard, it turned out to be a lovely visit. In the glorious sunshine we learnt about the working mill which produces flour for sale. Children will enjoy looking around the mill. After which the can visit the adjacent park that was once a haunt for Tolkien. The mill and park bought back found memories of growing up in Birmingham. We often played in these little parks, hung out on canals and scrimped fruit. Worth a visit.
  • Lots to learn about Tolkien's childhood here when you tour the Mill. Great history and a lovely outdoor setting. Plenty of family friendly events on throughout the year such as the Tolkien weekend festival and mini street food festival.
  • Small, but beautiful and tranquil. My 6-year old son loves it. A fair bit here for Tolkien afficionados too.
  • Liked it. Could do with a sign on to say it's open.
