Information panels describe the Mill’s thousand years of history and the restoration after the disastrous fire of 1992 and our Milly Mouse signs direct visitors’ attention to key points around the building giving an insight into the milling process and the history of the Mill and its restoration. ‘Milly Mouse’s Missing Words Trail’ leaflet is designed for children to explore the trail for themselves. There is also a guidebook available for sale in the Kingfisher gift shop and volunteer guides are available to answer visitors’ questions.
The Mill stands in an eight acre Local Nature Reserve with plantings of native trees, hedges and a wildflower meadow. Ponds of varying depths benefit birds, insects and amphibians with living willow hides and a pond dipping platform. There is a lovely one mile walk with a wide grass path which ambles through the meadows and along the riverside.
There are handy signposts and information panels strategically positioned around the walks with a shelter, benches and picnic tables at various points.
Open daily except 07/08 May and 08/09 October.
Access is via the free car park.
