Superbly friendly place with lots to see and do during steaming weekends. Stalls, activities (we learned how to carve spoons) and even a chance for kids (of all ages) to learn to blacksmith! Super... more »
We went on a steam day (when everything was running) and it was great fun, there were multiple stalls set up around the area selling a range of arts and crafts. They had a lovely barbeque where they served a delicous burger piled high with home grown vegetables and with a gluten free bun, then we settled down to watch traditional Morris Dancers for a while before going in to the mill itself and listening to a talk on the history of the mill. After this we looked around the workshop and enjoyed watching the steam engines and water wheel turning, to top it all off for £10 or £6 if you are u16 we got the chance to work on a historic forge to take home a toasting fork or a poker.
This just didn't appeal to me and my wife. If you like events with Morris Dancers, men with beards, and women spinning wool and running the tea room, then maybe it will appeal to you more. £7.50 entry is expensive in my opinion - there was a mention of doing your own forging but that would have been an additional £10 and no one was even doing it. We've previously had fascinating discussions with people running restored steam engines (at different places) so I expected something a bit more engaging.
