Worsbrough Mill Celebrates National Mills  

9th May 2024

A day of fun and learning for the whole family. 

 Worsbrough Mill and Country Park will be marking National Mills weekend with a day of activities that celebrates the UK’s milling heritage. 

 On Sunday 12 May, you will have the opportunity to explore the Mill, talk to the miller, find out more about the mill’s history by taking a guided tour, make flatbreads with the organic flour produced onsite and enjoy free family craft activities. 

 The Mill is one of a small number of working water mills in the country, and first produced stoneground flour during the reign of Charles I in 1625. It has a fascinating history and has been an important part of flour production in the borough for centuries. 

 It will be a unique opportunity to find out more about the Mill and see its water wheel, millstones and historic machinery. 

 The event runs from 10am until 3pm. 

Jon Finch, Head of Culture and Visitor Economy said: “Worsbrough Mill and Country Park is a special place to visit, bringing history and nature together in the most remarkable way. Our National Mills celebration event is a unique opportunity to explore the history and heritage of our working water mill through a variety of activities and events. We hope this event will inspire people of all ages to learn more about the fascinating story of Worsbrough Mill and its role in our community.”
