Learning At The Town Mill

The Town Mill offers an opportunity to bring to life the study of many topics within Key Stages 1 and 2 of the national curriculum. The Mill is a dramatic, ancient site that captures the imagination of children and adults, and has been managed for 16 years as a charitable trust by volunteers who love to share their knowledge and passion for the mill, its history and technology.

We welcome school students and teachers to use the Mill for educational visits, to encourage learning about our local heritage, and to gain an understanding of how a watermill is operated to grind grain into flour. We can offer a hands-on journey of discovery at the Mill: providing inspiration for activities such as story writing, poetry, observational drawing and painting, model-making, cookery and design and technology.

We would love to work with you to offer a unique learning experience to your students. If you are interested please contact Nicky Taylor at nickytownmill@gmail.com or on 01297 444042. Nicky can give you more details, understand your requirements and what you want to get out of your class’ experience at the Town Mill, and help you to book your visit.

UPDATE: We are excited to be developing a new educational base in our Bakehouse Attic with dedicated classroom space, supported by the Co-operative Community Fund.  This multi-purpose space can be booked for workshops and community group use.
