Heritage open weekend, 14th & 15th September 2019


A unique opportunity to go on a guided tour inside the buildings and see how the work is progressing. Guided tours will be available at regular intervals throughout the weekend between 10am and 4pm, with a chance to look in the Main Mill and see the views from the newly opened up windows. This should easily compensate for the fact that the tower won't be accessible for tours at this point. The building works dictate that it is currently out of bounds.

There will be interpretation and displays on the history, structure and uses of the buildings. In addition there will be an open art exhibition, which will remain accessible until the 22nd of September, with a preview evening on the 13th .

There will be child friendly activities and other displays and entertainment during the weekend. The Visitor Centre will also be open, with volunteers available to talk about the history of the buildings and their future.

Please note, tours last about 1 hour. To go on a tour of the buildings visitors must be over 16 years old and wear suitable sturdy footwear. Visitors wearing heels or open sandals will not be allowed on tours.
