Blue Flower

We had several working parties preparing for Heritage Open Days, we finished the little mill visitor centre, including installing a water butt, lighting, shelves and displays. We also tidied up, weeded the brick floor and cut the grass. We tested the metal detector so visitors could try this out for themselves.

Fred made a wooden frame for the notice board (in the style of the gate frame over the river) for our information board, which has been installed on the footpath opposite the mill.

There were around 30 people at the open days on Saturday 8 September and about 80 on Sunday. The model of the mill made by David Turner was on show in the new building on a replica millstone table, as well as several other new displays including the story of the Marriott family who owned the mill in its working days.

We had the water wheel turning using our pump which visitors and volunteers enjoyed watching. Thank you to everyone who came along, we hope you enjoyed your visit. The next open days will be Mills Weekend in May 2019 but we also welcome visitors on Thursdays when volunteers are on site, access is by our footbridge from the Nar Valley way. Group visits can be arranged by contacting us.
