With Valentine's Day fast approaching, we wanted to share some of the most romantic objects in our collection!

This intricate, mechanical Valentine Card was produced by Raphael Tuck & Co one of the most famous card makers of the late Victorian period. They were a very popular choice for senders of Valentines and included a little poem and ‘Loving Greetings’ on the base.

Thanks for the tips yesterday on proper tensioning of the dough and sieving the flour . Todays loaf a real success!
Love this place ! Have brought my grandchildren here when they were younger and the flour is wonderful , made some delicious bread this lockdown with the flour ! Even made rolls for the first time and they were delicious ! Linda Dobbs, fab service manager had passed via email to me some lovely tips as I am not used to baking hand made bread only use my bread maker usually but with trial and error have made delicious bread now ! Will come on a workshop hopefully one day !
Will there be any Halloween events going on during half term please?
Thank you Sharon for a great toddler morning . Sad that there were so few people for all the effort but we had a ball 😀
Is the Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday cafe coming to Mill Green again this Summer? When does it start please??
Good morning, I would like to come along to the toddler morning this week. We have a 14 month old who is toddling. Is he the right age to come along?
A superb Halloween party at the mill (as always!) huge thanks to all the staff and volunteers for making the place so special and for the attention and kindness offered to our children. Our son and his friend had a blast. The disco tent was a stroke of genius - please keep it for future events. Already looking forward to your Christmas event. You asked for feedback and recommendations - Please start creating Facebook events again. Then those of us that are big fans can share your fabulous activities and hopefully increase the footfall a little. Thanks again x
Looking for flour to bake a,cake x
Do we have to pre book for Water Event on 23rd?
