A Day at the Mill: Covering Science and History

1 July 2015 - 31 December 2020

Your themed visit includes a guided tour of our fully working watermill explaining the machinery, the history and the importance of the mill in food and farming. Pupils will see wheat being ground into flour, hear and feel the rumble of the ancient machinery, help to work a sack hoist, and witness the power of the waterwheels.

In addition to your tour, we offer a hands-on workshop exploring watermill themes and supporting the Forces, Friction and Mechanisms element of the KS2 science curriculum. Pupils discover how water, forces and friction drive everyday equipment and machines and they then make their own machines using a range of gears.
