  • What a find, this was much better than expected. We were shown round by a wonderful lady who is a volunteer who explained in detail what went on here and who lived here, she introduced us to another volunteer who explained and showed us the workings. They were both so friendly and passionate about the mill that they obviously loved so much. They are slowly finding more and more things about the mill and things that would have belonged there. There is not really any wheelchair access which is a shame but that's the nature of the building unfortunately not something they can change very easily. They are as far as I can tell looking after the building solely on donations but are hoping to get status and funding soon so that they can get help in saving this very important and loveable piece of history. We hope to come back one day and see how they have done. It's not expensive at all to get in all they ask is a small donation and for the experience you get it's well worth dipping into your pocket. This is a must stop and visit place that you really should not miss out on
  • Nice little surprise in a place we didn't expect to go to. This little gem was staffed by a curator who clearly was very passionate about the mill and its history. He spoke to the the kids in a way they understood, without being patronising! It's a really old building, so isn't the most wheelchair friendly. However, that's no the museums fault. I'd love to go back!
  • Been through here several time never seen the mill until this Easter break, great couple of hours had. Thanks
