If you have a blue badge, you should be able to park right outside the Mill door.

But please ring us before you visit, and we will aim to reserve this space.

Level access

There is level access to the ground floor canal and giftware shop.  We have double doors, so there is plenty of room for wheelchairs.  Gangways are more than wide enough.

The Needlework and Craft shop is on the first floor, accessible by wide stairs, with a landing half way.  If you cannot go upstairs, we’ll be pleased to bring relevant items to you.

Assistance dogs

are welcomed, but then we are happy for any dog to accompany their owner in the shop!


We have chairs on each floor, in case you need to catch your breath.

In summary, we’ll do all we can to help during your visit.
