Volunteering at Sarehole Mill

At Sarehole Mill we have a great volunteer team of Millers, Gardeners and Heritage Interpreters

Our Millers do everything from using the mill to create flour, baking, maintenance of the water wheel, to teaching visitors how the machinery works. The Garden team single-handedly keep the stunning gardens around the Mill Pond looking perfect and our Heritage Interpreters make sure that every visitor enjoys the time they spend with us at the Mill.

The team here are award winners! Their dedication to Sarehole Mill won them the prestigious Marsh Award for Museum Learning in 2013 .

Sarehole Mill has a lovely, welcoming feel to it and is a sociable place to volunteer. The team have done a wonderful job in transforming the site over the years, and it really is a special place to be part of and visit. 

Our volunteers often get involved with our events programme too which has allowed us to put on some really creative and fun events such as our Halloween Pumpkin Flotilla!

You can read one Miller’s story about volunteering just after the refurbishment of the Mill here: Stories from the Mill

Sarehole Mill is open to the public from April – November and we normally recruit new Heritage Interpreters to Team Sarehole in June. See current Volunteer Opportunities at Birmingham Museums.
