We are currently recruiting Millers to join our award winning existing team at Sarehole Mill! If you work well with machinery and would enjoy a new challenge for the new year then why not come and learn to mill.

We have signed up to The Charter for Heritage Volunteering which ensures volunteers are well managed and volunteering programmes are well structured. The Charter is a best practice standard based on eight key principles which help to give volunteers a great experience when volunteering in Heritage organisations. You can find out more about the NHVC by following @HeritageVols on twitter or visiting their blog.
