Shelsley Water Mill
The water mill at Shelsley Walsh was part of a farming community in the
Teme Valley in Worcestershire.
There has been a
or near this site since 1308, but the current mill shows three stages
of construction spanning 200 years. It was last used to grind animal
feed around 1923.
The Society has restored the mill to a working
condition for use as a visitor attraction and educational resource, as
well as providing active conservation of wildlife habitat.
The mill is located near the foot of the famous
Shelsley Walsh hill-climb course run by the Midland Automobile Club
adjacent to the beautiful St Andrews church which is well worth a visit
As well as having two pairs of millstones there is
also a geared shaft taking power from the waterwheel into the farm
buildings where it drives the original Chaff Cutter and Root
Everything is in working order and is occasionally
used. Follow the restoration of the mill and learn more
about the history of the mill and the local community that it served.
