Review of Mill Green Mill & Museum

Posted on by John d TCustomer visited Oct 2016

“A Working Water Mill”
Reviewed 9 October 2016
A little tucked away but so close to major routes this museum is excellent. Best to visit when the water driven mill is in action and flour is actually being milled. The adjacent museum is fairly compact but crammed with local material.
We last visited on a special event day with historic cars being displayed and it was, to say the least, packed! Easy to spend a couple of hours here.
Car parking capacity not normally a problem but be prepared if you visit on a special event day.

Hidden gem in Hatfield. Small charge to visit. Working water mill, fantastic to stand and watch the huge wooden paddle turn in the water and walk around the mill at work. Small shop selling souvenirs and flour from the mill. Small interesting local museum with an area for changing exhibitions. Museum runs occasional workshops in bread making and crafts. Check website for special themed days like vintage car days etc. Small tea room runs in summer. Great place to spend a hour or two.

Visited today. Wonderful display of old equipment. They were milling today and the miller made time to speak to us. He was very informative. Entry was a reasonable price £3.50 a pleasant experience.

Mill Green Museum is just down the road from me so I visit quite a lot in the summer months when they run an excellent cafe service on Tuesdays-Thursdays lunchtimes (check the website for dates). They offer sandwiches/baguettes/quiche and baked potatoes and a jam and cream scone (we had an interesting discussion about how that word should be pronounced) to finish it all off! The grounds are very pretty with lots of interesting historical artefacts dotted around. The museum often changes the theme of the exhibitions - I particularly like the 1970s ones so I can look at the exhibits and say "I had one of them!".

We often visit here in the school holidays. The activities are not only fun but also educational. Very reasonably priced. Staff are super friendly. Highly recommend a visit.

We had a lovely afternoon here. Friendly staff with lots to see and you can buy flour to take home to bake your own bread.


Review of Mill Green Mill & Museum

Posted on by Trot GCustomer visited Aug 2016

Visited here today with a friend and four children aged 2,3,4 & 8. Most importantly the children enjoyed their visit, though we struggled to stretch the visit to two hours and that was including lunch.

There is enough parking spaces for 5 cars including one disabled space, though there are other spaces on the road adjacent to the mill, outside the actual grounds.

It costs £3.50 per adult, children are free, though an additional charge of £3 is applicable per child if you want to join in with the creative activities.

We were able to watch the entire process of flour making and the children were able to grind some too, using two historical methods (I won't spoil the surprise!)

There is a room with various activities such as puzzles, old fashioned toys and dressing up hats for children to enjoy. Another has various artefacts (and replicas) from various time periods dating back through history, as well as a 'lift the flap' wall display, giving you information about various animals and the purposes they served in ancient times.

Despite it being the summer holidays, there weren't many other people there, which was nice as it enabled us to make the most of everything, without being crowded.

There's a nice little garden area with benches and tables if you want to take your own lunch, or you can buy some whilst you're there.


Review of Mill Green Mill & Museum

Posted on by Andrew081 TCustomer visited Aug 2016

Mill Green Museum and Mill is slightly hidden away, but well sign-posted (actually next to A1(M)). There is limited car parking on site, but plenty on the street outside.

The museum and mill cost £3.50 to visit (children free), but you can visit the grounds and café without paying.

The museum is quite small. In the first room we tried on hats and took silly photos. In the second room story boards take you through life in different ages – in this room there was also some colouring sheets and pens available for children (and the remains of some playdoh).

Third room contained an old dwelling hut. We liked the railway related items and the sample station platform!

The fourth room / area is the mill itself on two levels, plus a viewing bridge over the stream. Milling was happening and someone, in costume, was making corn dollies.

Outside are many artefacts of interest plus a small garden area. On a sunny day the outside is very picturesque.

We finished our visit with a cream tea in the gardens. On a sunny day this is an excellent attraction. If the weather is not so kind then you may be a bit disappointed as the museum by itself is not very large.
