"A Gem!"

Reviewed October 2017

"A tiny museum but with a wealth of knowledge from the volunteers - would have loved to have gone on a day when milling was taking place. Word of warning - the steps up to the two levels are very steep and uneven but worth the effort, also have to watch out for very low ceilings! Bought milled flour and plum loaf - would buy my bread flour from them all the time if I could but I'm not local - will have to stock up next time I'm in the area!"

"An Interesting Visit"

Reviewed October 2017

"An interesting visit to a working water mill where you can learn about milling, then buy some milled flour. Afterwards take the 10 minute riverside walk into Sleaford town centre."

"Love visiting here. Kids always enjoy and staff are always helpful and answer the endless questions. Shop is good and the days they have the mill working are well worth a visit."

"Pretty Place"

Reviewed October 2017

"A nice walk from town at side of river Slea brings you to this pretty watermill. It is good that it was saved from falling in disrepair as all the other mills on the river have gone. There are some interesting old pictures of former tenants and their children to see as well as all the implements involved in milling flour. A nice free place to visit in a lovely location."

"Wow what a stunning little water mill in Sleaford. Only a few minutes walk from the town down the river. Definitely worth a visit."

"Afternoon Visit"

Reviewed August 2017

"We were in Sleaford and as it was a lovely day decided to walk along the river to the Mill. The mill was not working during our visit but you can still have a look around and there is a small gift shop area as well as information leaflets. There is a small car park if you don't want to walk from Sleaford and it is in a lovely position on the river. Free to visit."

"Free entry to very interesting attraction"

Reviewed July 2017

"You don't get much for free these days and parking is free for 2 hours as well so you can stroll along the canal bank as well . The mill has special days when it is working check website for details next one is 9th July . This has been restored to working order using lots of 're engineered pieces to make as authentic as possible along with extra strengthening for safety . The Miller has been there for many years and says that they are looking for a younger energetic person to take it on as at 72 years old it is getting a bit too much for him and getting up and down the steps was difficult but well worth it for us . There is also a gift shop with local produce and crafts at reasonable prices".

"Working Watermill"

Reviewed April 2017

"You can walk along the side of the river from the centre of Sleaford which is very pleasant or alternatively there is a small car park close to the mill. The mill does have open days when you can see the mill working. A lovely building and well worth a visit".

"Beautiful Setting"

Reviewed April 2017

"Beautiful setting, so close to the town centre, yet you feel as if you are in the heart of the countryside. River Slea is so clean you can seethe pebbles on the bottom. The Mill is very interesting and mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The hot chocolate was delicious and very hot. I would definitely recommend to anyone".

"Perfect Place for a Stroll"

Reviewed April 2017

"Free Entry. The Mill has a fascinating history laid out on a timeline inside. Good details of the mechanics of the Mill, and access on 3 floors to see how a water Wheel works. Next 'working' day 14/05/17. Its a charming 10 minute walk fro Town Centre - lots to see on the walk, and a shop at the Mill. Hot drinks only available from a machine on the day we attended 12/04/17."
