It was so nice ro see the mills working and be able to speak to the people who maintain them to learn how they work and their history. There is a room for children to make models and a tea room. Worth taking the family.

Run by Deborah and her team of enthusiastic eccentrics, this place deserves to be overrun with visitors, such are their knowledge and enthusiasm. Well worth the walk from the river. Just don't trust the signs which say it's closed. It probably isn't!
