Mill Green Mill and Museum is holding an open day as part of a national initiative to showcase the traditional craft.

The Mill will open its doors along with others country-wide on Sunday, May 14, between 2pm and 5pm, when visitors will also be able to enjoy cream teas made from Mill Green flour.

Southgate Amateur Radio Club will return for the event, setting up a radio station during the afternoon, hoping to speak to mills across the country.

Other entertainment will include Morris dance performances, storytelling, children’s activities, tours of the mill and food and drink stalls.

Councillor Tony Kingsbury, executive member for policy and culture, said: “National Open Mills Weekend is always a popular event at Mill Green that celebrates Welwyn Hatfield’s historic working water mill.

“The event also coincides with Voices Beyond the Mill, an exhibition uncovering the traditional craft of milling through the ages, including sharing milling phrases and sayings.

“There really is something for the whole family to enjoy at Mill Green this Sunday.”

National Open Mills Weekend is organised by SPAB (Society for the Preservation of Ancient Buildings) - Mills Section, as an annual event.
