On entering Mathern village from the A48, turn right at the war memorial and
follow the lane for 400yds.
Mathern Mill is a corn mill whose existence can be traced back to at least the
17th century. Although milling ceased in 1968 much of the Victorian machinery
remains intact. There are 4 pairs of millstones and a brick built engine house
which once housed a steam engine to supplement the water supply.
Outside, the development of the building can be traced and the skeleton of the
water wheel can be seen.
Although the mill is unrestored, there is plenty to see inside. The ground floor
is open to visitors and the stone floor (first floor) can be viewed, though not
accessed. Visitors can find a wealth of information about the mill's history,
its workings and its occupants over three centuries.
There are several activities to keep children amused.
