About Us

Step back in time and visit one of the country’s best preserved water powered corn mills.  First recorded in 1351, Stretton Watermill was a working mill until its last miller retired in 1959.  Visit the 19th-century stable block to learn about the history of the mill and explore models of the building and its machinery.  One of our millers will then take you on a fascinating tour to see the ancient wooden machinery in action, listen to stories, and have a go at milling grain.  Bring a picnic and enjoy the idyllic rural setting with beautiful views of the pond and mill buildings.

There are occasional special exhibitions and events.  See website for more information.
