The Mill’s History
Historically there were a number of water mills along the Gowy Valley, reflecting the rich agricultural heritage of the area. Records show that there has been a mill at Bunbury since 1290. It is believed that the present building dates from circa 1850 when Thomas Parker began milling flour.
Welcome to Bunbury Mill
Bunbury Mill is a beautifully restored water mill standing in two acres of wildlife rich countryside.
Now owned by a village trust the mill has been re-opened and given a fresh lease of life creating the perfect place for people of all ages to visit.
A mill has existed on the site since 1290, though in 1960 a massive flood ended its working life. After many years of neglect the mill was rediscovered and returned to its full working glory.
The mill is open on Sunday afternoons and for pre-arranged group or school visits. Come along and visit us, you will be assured of a warm welcome and a trip back in time.
The mill is now a village run project relying on the
generosity of volunteers and charitable donations
from those sharing our desire to maintain Bunbury Mill as a working museum for future generations.
