Sarehole Mill, Cole Bank Road, Hall Green, Birmingham, West Midlands, B13 0BD

Sarehole Mill is one of only two surviving working watermills in Birmingham. As a childhood haunt of JRR Tolkien, Sarehole and it's surroundings inspired parts of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. See the wheel in action as the working mill machinery produces wholemeal flour sold on site. Talk on Mill on Friday and bread baking on Sunday. Trails and quizzes are available, as are puzzles and inter-actives as part of the interpretation of the mill.
