Families

Get hands-on with history in a fully interactive visit to Heatherslaw Corn Mill – fun for all the family!

You can explore the mill yourself or take the opportunity to meet up with one of our millers for a full tour of the building. Take home your own flour after feeling its warmth when it was fresh off the millstones.

Children can:

  • Discover how your flour is made from start to finish.
  • Have a go at the junior millers’ quiz and mouse trail!
  • Taste your own bread in one of our bread-making sessions in the school holidays (Monday – Friday, pre-booking recommended).
  • Step back in time in a recreation of the miller’s cottage and dress-up in a selection of Victorian costumes.
  • Learn about miller’s clock and how it assisted them in their job.

Why not combine your visit to the mill with a trip on the Heatherslaw Light Railway or stop by the Mill Tearoom
