National Mills Weekend, Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th May, 2019

National Mills Weekend is held on the second weekend of May each year. The weekend is organised by the Mills Section of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. Some of the working mills are more than 300 years old, yet are still efficiently doing the job they were built and designed for in the 21st century.

Many mills taking part run special family events and activities during the weekend, including demonstrations and the chance to buy flour and other produce made on the premises. This event has grown year on year. The popularity of National Mills Weekend shows how important these wonderful buildings are, both in terms of our national heritage and our landscape. And, with increasing interest in natural food production and sustainable power sources it's hardly surprising that people want to find out more.

Details of which mills are taking part can be found on the link above.

Union Mill will be OPEN both days, 2:30pm-5pm as usual

Heritage Open Days - 14th and 15th September, 2019

Heritage Open Days celebrate England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. Every year on four days in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, ranging from castles to factories, town halls to tithe barns, parish churches to Buddhist temples. It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities which bring to life local history and culture.

Check the Website for details of other places to visit.

Union Mill will only be OPEN both days, 2:30pm-5pm as usual
