New Hall Mill open again this Bank Holiday Monday!

P1040438

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

New Hall Mill near Sutton Coldfield is open again this Bank Holiday Monday (29th August 2016) and I can heartily recommend the place – It’s fascinating and I had a great time there on Spring Bank Holiday Monday 2015 – not enough people know about this wonderful building and the dedicated folk who look after it.

It’s free to enter too (although donations are welcomed). I should point out that dogs are not permitted (except assistance dogs), so probably best to leave Old Shep home…

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

Hi Bob,

The Friends of New Hall Mill are opening the mill to the public this coming Bank Holiday Monday (29th August 2016), a chance to see flour being produced from grain in the traditional way along with entertainment in the mill meadow

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 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  or on our website – www.newhallmill.org.uk

I totally geeked out over this wonderful place.

There is an exhibition room & gift shop 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.

The times of opening are 10.00 – 16.00 and this year’s remaining open days are as follows –

Bank holiday Monday August 29th
Sunday September 11th

Access to the mill is off Wylde Green road, Sutton Coldfield, B76 1QU, some 200 metres from National cycle route 534.

Best regards,

This is certainly one worth visiting – please do pop along if you can.  You can check out a gallery of my photos taken there last year below. I had a great time.
