Shelsley Water Mill

There has been a watermill on or near this site since 1308, but the current mill shows three stages of construction spanning over 300 years. It was last used to grind animal feed around 1923. The Society has restored the mill to a working condition for use as a visitor attraction and educational resource, as well as providing active conservation of wildlife habitat. As well as having two pairs of millstones there is also a geared shaft taking power from the waterwheel into the farm buildings where it drives the original Chaff Cutter and Root Chopper.
