Explore Sarehole Mill’s links with Tolkien. 

The Mill is part of the Tolkien Trail, which follows the childhood footsteps of the author and the places that influenced his writing. Although some of the visitor access information in this leaflet is no longer accurate, you can still download the informative Tolkien Trail (PDF) to find out more about J.R.R Tolkien’s relationship with Birmingham.

There are also regular guided tours entitled The Origins of Middle-earth. Look out for these on our What's On page.
