New Hall Mill open this Sunday – come and share a hobby!


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

Theres a lovely thing to visit locally this Sunday (9th August 2015), that’s close by, free and absolutely fascinating

New Hall Mill is open again this Sunday for their Hobbies 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,

Have you any readers considering taking up a hobby?

Come along to our Hobbies day at Newhall Mill on Sunday August 9th when the mill will be fully operational and see what we do to produce flour and look after a piece of history. You could become a friend of the mill as we are always on the lookout for new members.

Additionally, other interests and hobbies will be on display with demonstrations by:

The Sutton Coldfield Rifle and Pistol Club who will be offering taster sessions using Laser pistols or rifles allowing you to shoot at electronic targets

The Trinity Photography Group

Our Beekeeper, Julian Routh

The Sutton Coldfield East District Scouts

If having a collection of unusual items is more to your liking, we will have displays of blowlamps, sprayers, milk bottles and dairy equipment…

If you have a hobby or interest which you would like to be shared with others, come and talk to us, we may be able to accommodate you next year.


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 August 9th – Hobbies day
  • Bank holiday Monday August 31st – Arts and Crafts day
  • Sunday September 13th – History day

Although there is no charge for car parking or for admission to the mill or gardens, collection boxes are positioned at various locations. Donations from visitors are very welcome as the mill depends upon these to assist towards the costs of maintaining and running the mill for your pleasure and enjoyment.

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

More details can be found on our website –

Best regards,
Alan Dawson – A friend of New Hall Mill.

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!

    I would be interested to visit New Hall Farm But you have not given an address of where it is?

  2. Just returned from the open day – highly recommended. Some of the most friendly and informative people I have ever come across and very good value tea and cakes.

    The mill is in the back yard of what was the home of Sir Alfred Owen when Rubery-Owen was in its prime. It is now a rather posh hotel. I drove around the block to have a peek and found the car park full to bursting point with people going in to their £30 Sunday lunch!

    I stuck to the mill catering under the shade of trees beside what I think is Plants Brook.

      Hi BrownhillsDavidNotBob Many thanks, we appreciate your kind comments and hope that you may tell others about us, there being two more open days this year. You are correct about Plants Brook, which was formerly known as E Brook, hence the local road running parallel from Sutton – Ebrook Road. Thanks again, Alan Dawson – A friend of Newhall Mill
