Marvel at a working 17th-century water mill

Worsbrough, South Yorkshire

Worsbrough Mill in Northern England is an amazing place to watch wildlife and see history come alive in a beautiful setting.

Visit Worsbrough Mill, just outside central Barnsley, and be transported to a place of calm and serenity where you’ll see history come to life. Learn about centuries of milling and bread making and be amazed by the power of water, as you watch flour being milled in the traditional way. 

The mill is set within a stunning 200-acre country park and tranquil nature reserve that can be explored on foot or by bicycle. Take in incredible views and a fantastic array of wildlife while enjoying a sticky slice of Yorkshire parkin from the café.

One of the few remaining working water mills in the UK, Worsbrough produces a range of premium quality organic flours on sale to customers, using water power from the mill stream off the River Dove.
