History and science come together at Stretton Watermill. Booking a school visit to the mill will let your pupils learn and discover the importance of food and mills in both the past and present, and the changing role they played throughout history. Pupils will also develop their understanding of science, through hands on learning that demonstrates the complex forces, frictions and mechanisms at work in a fully operational watermill.
Our education workshops and watermill tours are designed to create a hands-on learning experience, that ensures every school trip is not only a enjoyable day, but also reinforces classroom learning with close curriculum links.
Find more information on our schools sessions, booking a visit, and our workshops, by following the link below to our schools website.
For pre-booked adult groups we offer a personal guided tour with your own miller. Please book in advance so we can make sure an extra miller is on site, as we are unlikely to be able to accommodate larger groups turning up without booking.
For group visits we charge £3 per person with a minimum charge of £45, (equivalent to 15 people). We are happy to arrange visits for groups at any time during daylight hours from April to October.
Conducted tours of the mill can also be given in French. (Visites guidées du moulin peuvent être donnés en français.)
We have space for a coach or up to 25 cars on our car park.
Many visiting groups also go on to nearby attractions such as Beeston Castle, Cholmondeley Castle Gardens, or Tattenhall Ice Cream Farm.
If you would like to arrange a visit then please contact our main office at Weaver Hall Museum on 01606 271640 or email the Learning Team on firstname.lastname@example.org
