The Friends of New Hall Mill


Ever wanted to become a miller or to operate a water mill? If so, here's your chance!

The 'Friends of New Hall Mill' are a group of people who maintain the mill and the surrounding areas in a suitable condition for visiting by the public on the regular Open Days. On these, the second Sunday of the month from May to September and the Spring and Late Summer Bank Holiday Mondays, they operate the mill, provide guidance and information to the visitors, serve in the tea room and run the produce stall in the Miller's Garden.

For a nominal subscription you will be able to visit the mill throughout the year on the monthly 'work' days. Maybe you are attracted by the old milling machinery and just wish to learn more, or perhaps you would like to assist in their restoration. Do you fancy a spot of light gardening, maybe with a plot of your own in the Miller's Garden? Or just want a day 'away from it all', working in the fresh air! Then why not consider becoming a Friend.

Get away from the Sunday 'chores' with a day at the mill - there's always something to do! 'Workers' even get a morning coffee break, with maybe a biscuit as well if they are quick! Visit the Picture Gallery and select Mill Work Days to see examples of the work that Friends may do.

A regular News Magazine is produced and distributed free to Friends.

There are normally two working days per month; the second Sunday of the month (except for May to September when it is on the first Sunday), and a Thursday later in the month. We also have a work day on the Sunday immediately preceeding the Open Days on the Bank Holiday Monday at the end of May and August.

For further information, contact a Friend or come along to a Work Day or an Open Day.
