New Hall Mill open right now – come and get crafty!

Hey people, the weather is clearing – Why not get out and pay this one a visit?


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

Theres a lovely thing to visit locally this Bank Holiday Monday (31st August 2015), that’s close by, free and absolutely fascinating

New Hall Mill is open again this Monday for their Arts and Crafts 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 Monday’s event:

Hi Bob & Friends of the Blog,

We are going to be Arty and Crafty at Newhall Mill on Bank Holiday Monday. Why not take a look? There are only two more open days this year when visitors may visit this restored 18th century working water mill that’s not too far away.

Come along to our Arts and Crafts day 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.

There will be demonstrations and displays of traditional arts and crafts by :

The Walsall Handspinners

The Sutton Lacemakers

The Sutton Coldfield Society of Artists

The Sutton Coldfield Trinity Quilters

Traditional woodturning

Entertainment will be provided by The Side-by-Siders, a ukulele ensemble.


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 –

  • 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!
