Hidden just a short ten minute drive from Moseley town centre, Sarehole Mill is one of only two working watermills in Birmingham. Open to the public as both a museum and working mill, it’s is perfect for an afternoon visit.
The interior of Sarehole Mill is filled with fascinating machinery, demonstrating how the mill was run. Some of it still in working condition, the sound of running water, which powers the mill, fills the building.
The Mill overlooks an idyllic waterside view; the Mill Pond. Home to a collection of wildlife and beautifully wild gardens, it is one of the joys of visiting the property.
It is the simple, relaxed restoration of Sarehole Mill which gives this museum its charm. Such care has been taken to create a wonderfully rural atmosphere, staying true to the Mill’s original purpose.
Visiting Sarehole Mill and the Mill Pond is taking a step back to simpler times; hidden from the bustling city by vibrant foliage and a quintessentially country garden, the property is a rustic delight to explore.
Open Tuesday to Sunday, take a look at Sarehole Mill to help plan your trip. Every Sunday, there is a milling demonstration.
