The Street, Shalford, Guildford, Surrey, GU4 8BS
Visitors call the Mill a ‘living’ place – a place where the graffitied, lime-washed walls and the ancient hessian sacks mingle with the smell of the timbers and tallow. A lucky survivor, it tells the story of the decline of traditional village work and life. And then there’s the romantic story of how it survived; of the eccentric Ferguson Gang’s attempt to stop the urbanisation of rural England. And of how they used the Mill as a base to plan for future missions whilst sitting around the millstones at dawn. Today these stories are brought to life thorough our guides who will show you around. They also make our regular children’s and adults’ activities interesting and fun. From milling your own flour, to dressing up; guided walks in the surrounding countryside, to talks about the history of the Mill, there is a little extra treat for everyone.
This event took place in September 2013 and the entry is now archived.
The Mill is on 3 floors with access to the upper floors via original ladders. There is a virtual tour running on the ground floor for those unable to access the upper floors.
