New Hall Mill – A local, working watermill – open this Sunday


New Hall Mill is a splendid place, restored and run by wonderfully dedicated volunteers.

Theres a lovely thing to visit locally this Sunday (12th July 2015), that’s close by, free and absolutely fascinating

New Hall Mill is open again this Sunday for their Nature Day and I can heartily recommend the place. It’s fascinating and I had a great time there on Spring Bank Holiday Monday – not enough people know about this wonderful building.

It’s free to enter too (although donations are welcomed).

Alan Dawson, Friend of the mill, wrote to tell me all about Sunday’s event:

Hi Bob

Calling all nature lovers

This Sunday 12th July, is the Newhall Mill Nature open day, when in addition to experiencing the sights and sounds of a working 18th century water mill, visitors can meet representatives and see displays by the following organisations:

British Trust for Ornithology
Newhall Valley Country Park Steering Group. A guided walk of Newhall Valley will take place in the afternoon at 2.15
Environmental Trust
ECO – Sutton Group

Additional entertainment will be provided with the singing of sea shanties by The Lichfield Lighthouse Company.

And, for our younger visitors the opening of the Newhall Labyrinth, come and explore the paths through the long grass.


I totally geeked out over this wonderful place.

Entrance to the mill and car parking is free. The times of opening are 10.00 – 16.00 and this year’s remaining open days are as follows –

Sunday July 12th – Nature day
Sunday August 9th – Hobbies day

Access to the mill is off Wylde Green road, Sutton Coldfield, B76 1QU, some 200 metres from the National cycle route.

Best regards,

This is certainly one worth visiting – please do pop along if you can. It is truly fascinating.


It’s not just the Mill, although that’s a gem itself – but the wonderfully tended grounds – plus a fine teashop!
