Why you should visit

Combe Mill is a Victorian steam- and water-powered sawmill now operating as a working museum and everyone reckons that it is different from most other family destinations.

People come back time and again because there is always something different taking place or another object to be discovered.

A visitor wrote that it is a ‘true black fingernail museum’ and we ensure that there are plenty of hands-on activities to challenge and entertain all age groups.

Run entirely by volunteers, many of whom are retired engineers and craftsmen who love to reminisce, you will never find yourself lacking someone to chat with or to ask questions of.

Sunday afternoon tea by the Evenlode

We are looking for volunteers to serve in our attractive riverside tea room on Sundays from April until October so that we can offer refreshments to visitors to the Mill.  You can download our role description here.

Opportunities for Volunteers

What nicer way to relax on a Sunday afternoon than to partake of a quiet afternoon tea in our riverside tea room by the beautiful Evenlode.  

You might even enjoy exploring the Mill.

Open between 2 and 4pm  - every Sunday
