Unfortunately the waterwheel at Sarehole Mill is currently out of action, as we are unable to operate the machinery due to flood damage at the site earlier in the year. The hot summer weather and lack of rain has also had an effect.
A 250 year old idyllic watermill only four miles from Birmingham city centre.
The tranquil mill pond is a haven for wildlife including herons, mallards and moorhens - and if you are lucky you might spot our resident kingfisher!
We now have a pond-dipping platform and visitors can hire nets and see what minibeasts they can catch (subject to availability).

Beautiful old mill rich in history with friendly knowledgeable staff. A must for JRR Tolkien fans.Reviewer, Trip Advisor
