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.

You are very kind, and we are thrilled you enjoyed your visit so much. It is most rewarding for all the volunteers who give up their time at the mill to know that their efforts are so enjoyed. Spread the word!

We really enjoyed our trip to White Mill today. The windmill and its internal workings were fascinating, but the other buildings at the base filled with all manner of historical farming equipment were an unexpected bonus. Great value for money.
