Sarehole Mill, Hall Green, Birmingham
Sarehole Mill, Hall Green, Birmingham
There has been a mill on this site since 1542. It has been rebuilt since that time and was used by Matthew Boulton for sheet metal rolling during the 18th century. It was also used for grinding tools, making gun barrels and finally as a flour mill. It is Birmingham's last surviving water mill, and flour making demonstrations are still held occasionally. It is open to the public free of charge and deserves a visit if you're ever in the area.
