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

Theres a lovely thing to visit locally this Sunday (8th May 2016), that’s close by, free and absolutely fascinating

New Hall Mill is open again this Sunday for their first open day of 2016, for National Mills Weekend. 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,

On behalf of the Friends of Newhall Mill can I ask if you could promote our 2016 season. We had an extremely successful 2015 due in part to the favourable comments and photos made on your blog last year.

New Hall Water Mill is a fully restored 18th century mill which opens to the public on seven days each year. On open days the mill is operated by the Friends of the mill who produce flour and allow visitors to gain an insight into days past.

In addition, monthly changing events & displays, e.g. The Lichfield Lighthouse Company, falconry, steam models, etc, will be undertaken in the mill meadow where you can go on a guided walk or enter our labyrinth, if so desired. We attempt to cater for all interests and a full listing of events and entertainment can be seen on our Facebook page New Hall Mill – Facebook or on our website – http://www.newhallmill.org.uk

There is an exhibition room and a small tearoom selling cakes and beverages along with a garden shop where produce may be purchased from the millers garden.

Entrance to the mill and car parking is free, collection boxes for donations are positioned at various locations. Donations from visitors are most welcome as the mill depends upon these to assist towards the costs of maintaining and running the mill for your pleasure and enjoyment.
