watermills Wellesbourne Watermill events for the season

Wellesbourne Watermill near Stratford-upon-Avon has announced details of its events this season.

The working mill, on a Doomsday site, was rebuilt in 1834. After the Second World War it fell into disuse, but in 1989 the Walton Estate which owns it restored it to full working order. The waterwheel, on the River Dene is one of the largest in the country, and an 18th century barn offers teas, and a filmshow of the mills restoration.

Special events in 2003 include a historical re-enactment weekend by the Sealed Knot's Living History section on June 7 and 8, when visitors can experience life in a 17th Century Civil War army camp.

The mill will host the Warwickshire Rural Show on Sunday, July 13, a charity event where rural craftsmen display their skills and steam engines can be seen in action along with many other attractions.
