A visit to this mill offers an insight into the work, machinery and economy of rural life in Cheshire.
There has been a mill at Stretton since the 14th century and milling continued on a commercial basis until 1959. The building and machinery show the development from a timber-framed, one-wheeled building to a larger slated structure we see today.
Stretton was restored in 1975 and visitors are shown around the site by experienced millers who demonstrate the machinery and talk about the history of the building and rural life.
Tours are tailored to the age and interests of the visitors who are enchanted by the stories this delightful mill has to tell.
Opening Times: April and Sept every week-end 1pm-5pm
