The Georgian water mill offers an opportunity for students to gain first-hand a wide range of cross-curricular experiences. Due to the nature of the building, groups of 30 or smaller are recommended, but we are happy to make arrangements where possible for larger groups given enough advanced notice.

£4.00 + VAT per student for a full day visit (10:00am – 2:00pm)
All accompanying adults are free.
Some additional costs may be applicable for materials in art workshops, we will confirm on booking.
We will accept payment in advance or we can supply an invoice following the visit.
