New Developments at Worsbrough Mill
2nd November 2021
Have you been to the new shop and visitor space at Worsbrough Mill yet?
Earlier this year the Mill received a grant from the Culture Recovery Fund which has made important developments to the site possible.
The money was used to create a new visitor space and shop, a new volunteer hub within a derelict historic space for the mill’s award-winning volunteers to use and a micro-bakery which will regularly sell bread made from flour milled on site. The very popular on-site café, Millers Tea rooms, has also been extended to enable more visitors to sit inside and enjoy treats made from flour milled next door.
The transformed shop space is a treasure trove for budding bakers, cooking connoisseurs and wildlife enthusiasts with lots of unique and ethically sourced gift ideas on offer.
As well as funding important enhancements to the well-loved visitor attraction it also allowed important checks of the mill’s historic machinery, which has been working at full capacity throughout the pandemic, to take place.
Cllr Tim Cheetham, Cabinet Spokesperson for Place (Regeneration and Culture) said: “Worsborugh Mill and Country Park is such an asset to the borough offering both a wonderful day out but also an important home to significant wildlife and habitats. It’s visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year and to have developments such as this, which will make it an even more special place to visit, is great to see.”
