Explore rivers and the importance of water power at Sarehole Mill.
Starting at the mill, we discover how water powers the mill machinery, then we follow the journey of the water from the mill pond to the river Cole and beyond. With the help of fieldwork equipment your class will take measurements, identify river features and enter the river if conditions allow.
Wellies (and warm clothes) are essential as pupils will be entering the river during the workshop – local river conditions permitting. It is advised children bring a change of socks and shoes with them. At least one adult visiting with each class must have wellies on and be willing to accompany the Learning and Engagement Officer into the river if the weather permits us too.
At Sarehole Mill we can only deliver one taught session at a time. However, you can now bring two classes for a full day and take part in self-led activities whilst waiting for your session.
This session is not available December to February half term.
School visits to Sarehole Mill are available Wednesday - Friday.
