Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are closed and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like. Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event’s website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Late 18th century watermill. Once leased by Matthew Boulton for metal working, it is now a corn mill and milling takes place most Sundays. The mill has a stationary steam engine but this is not in working order. As a childhood haunt of JRR Tolkien, Sarehole and its surroundings inspired parts of 'The Hobbit' and 'Lord of the Rings'.
