“Interest in mechanical things essential”

Path Head Water Mill
Reviewed September 2, 2016

Have passed the sign for this mill many times on our way west. Decided to give it a try. There were 2 men working on site, one who took our money. He was very knowledgable and friendly, but unfortunately there was not a great deal of interest if you were not into mechanical structures.

We were looking for an attraction close to where we were staying. Something that would fill a one to two hour slot. This place was ideal. Steeped in local history, very welcoming and picturesque. We were greeted and shown around. It was an interesting visit. Highly recommended if you are in the area. Suitable for young and old.

Local history re: water mill (which hubby loved). Still needs a lot of working doing on it and think it will take some time. There are plenty of ponds but did not see any wildlife, hopefully next visit. Parking limited so get there early. Staff friendly and informative.

Path Head Water Mill is worth a visit for many different reasons. For the historically minded it is a fascinating insight into the past. For the technologically minded it is expanding to show how water power it links between the past and our future energy provision. For the nature lover it is set in beautiful grounds and for the artist there is an islet in the water proving a variety of views that made me wish I could draw or paint. it really needs a dry day to appreciate wall this site has to offer.

My grandson and I (age diffference 65yrs)went for a day out together to this tranquil, industrial revival site. There was plenty to see and do even though at first sight the area was small (which suited granny!). There were flowers,rivers, industrial equipment, outdoor games, historical items of interest. It was a great day of learning experiences mixed with play fun which kept us occupied for many hours. Our own packed lunches could be eaten on site, in a cosy cafe if the weather was inclement. We both thoroughly enjoyed our day here in May, and would love to return again. The price was not excessive and parking was free.
