Stretton Watermill is one of the country’s best preserved working watermills, and a grade II listed building, whose mill machinery is considered to be of national importance.The site has been used for milling since the middle of the 14th century. The present mill building dates from the 16th and 17th centuries, and was extended in the 18th and 19th centuries. The adjacent stables date from the 19th century. Commercial production of flour ceased in 1959 on the retirement of the last miller.Take a tour around the exhibition and learn the history of the mill, see the ancient wooden machinery in action, try your hand at milling the grain, work the miniature models and enjoy the wonderful setting.
Stretton Watermill is only 10 miles from Chester off the A534 between Farndon and Broxton. Turn off at the Cock O’ Barton pub and follow the brown signs. It is located on Mill Lane, but shows as an un-named road on some Sat Nav systems.
