Blue Flower

We opened to the public for Heritage open days on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September. Fred had cut the footpath so visitors were able to cross our footbridge from the Nar Valley Way to join us as well as using our car park at The Maltings. We had our trailer with seats in use giving visitors a lift along the river bank, which children enjoyed riding in.

We had the water wheel turning again, our original pump let us down and we tried to use a historic irrigation pump to turn the water wheel but it was not successful, so Fred bought a new pump in time for the open days which connects to the water feed pipe.

Our model mill was on display in the visitor centre showing how all the buildings looked when the mill was in operation, inside the model are details of the workings. 

New for this year were the updated photo albums, Debra recently added the latest pictures of us making the wildflower meadow, the meadow in flower and working on the fallen wall.

There were sausage rolls, biscuits and home made cakes as well as hot and cold drinks being served. We had around 150 visitors over the weekend and we got some lovely comments about the work we have done including our recent grant funded projects - the Green Community Grant and Wildflower Meadow. The cakes were popular and got several mentions too.

We would like to thank all our visitors, we hope you enjoyed your day. Many visitors made a donation, we are grateful for these as we rely on donations to keep the mill open to visitors.

If anyone is interested in joining us as a volunteer, working in this beautiful tranquil location, please see our Volunteering article and Contact Us.
