The Town Mill is an impressive working mill at the centre of Lyme Regis, where grain has been milled for over seven hundred years. With its milling machinery spread over three large floors, this watermill offers opportunities for the study of history, science and geography topics within Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 of the national curriculum. School, college and educational groups are very welcome at The Mill – do get in touch to discuss your requirements.

We welcome school students and teachers to use the Mill for educational visits, to encourage learning about our local heritage. The Mill is a dramatic, ancient site that captures the imagination of children and adults and hosted by passionate volunteers who love to share their knowledge of the mill’s history and technology. 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, engineering and design and technology.

We would love to work with you to offer a unique learning experience to your students – please contact us at or on 01297 444042 to discuss your needs.
