Having not been here for some years, I visited a few weeks back. Very interesting and lots of conservation work still going on. Well worth a visit.

Based round the 1760 mill also has some farming & rural life displays, well displayed millers cottage, forge, wheelwright's shop etc. Mill itself is fascinating and those with a good head for heights can climb to the top. Free. Staffed by friendly and enthusiastic volunteers.

Not big and didn't take long to see but its free and manned by really enthusiastic volunteers. Had a long chat to the chap making wrought iron. Very interesting. Also, the chap that explained the site on arrival was very helpful.
