A restored water mill dating from the 17th century, set in 7 acres of water meadows. Within the mill buildings are a craft exhibit, art gallery, and a fascinating museum of waterways and milling. Visitors can indulge in activities including milling and baking bread, mask making, and a Teddy Bears Picnic.
There was a mill on this site on the River Great Ouse at the time of the Doomsday Book (1086 AD). The site provided more than just an opportunity to grind grain, however; the river was rich in eels, and a blacksmith shop stood beside the mill. An apple orchard nearby provided tough wood for the gear teeth of the mill.
The Bromham Bridge, with fully 26 arches, spans the river beside the mill. There are several waymarked circular trails through the parkland that surrounds the mill.
Bromham Mill is open on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays 1 to 5
pm, from April to October.
Admission during opening hours is free and the café sells fresh
coffee and home made cakes.
It is available for groups at any time and we give guided tours,
baking lessons and craft activities on request. Meadow and picnic
area are open all day every day till dusk.
