Mosty Lea Mill Open Days‏

Mosty Lea Mill Open Days‏

Mosty Lea Mill is the last surviving intact bone/flint mill of the eleven mills which used to be in the Moddershall Valley.

Its origins as a mill date back to 1716 (and perhaps even earlier) when it was a cloth mill. Later in the century the mill was used for the grinding of  flint and then bone for the pottery industry.

A very pleasant walk in the valley from Kibblestone Scout Camp takes you to the mill which is open to the public on various dates troughout the year when the water wheel and grinding pans can be seen in action. Admission is free though donations are always welcome.

Open days this year are as follows Sunday 7th June, Sunday 5th July, Sunday 2nd August, and Sunday 13th Sept all between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm.

The mill is maintained by a small dedicated team of volunteers who are always looking for new members to help maintain this important piece of our industrial heritage.
