Here’s a different post for you this Sunday, I don’t usually review places I’ve been to but I visited Daniel’s Mill last weekend with my Mum and wanted to blog about it. I’ve lived in this town for nearly three years now, and also lived here for a good percentage of my teens and early twenties but had never been here before.
It’s a really pleasant mile walk from where I live to Daniel’s Mill and we arrived around 2.15 just in time to join the short tour of the mill, the stones and the watermill itself by a very knowledgeable volunteer. The mill estate has been run by the same family for the past 250 years which is a fabulous achievement.
After our tour we were then able to wander around the property at our own pace but we headed for the Stable Tea Room for afternoon tea. A pot of tea for 2, scone and jam and a slice of lemon drizzle cake came to £5.10 which I thought was very good value for money, especially as the cakes were delicious.
We then went for a stroll around the woodland walk and the pools. It was quite easy to imagine times gone by especially with the steam railway coming over the viaduct also. It was so calm and peaceful; just lovely.
Before we made our back along the river on the Severn Way we used the ladies, not very interesting I know, but worth a mention because they were immaculately clean!
I love visiting and supporting places like this because if this generation doesn’t visit these local places of interest they won’t be here for the next generation to discover and appreciate.

The mill is open Thursday to Sunday 11am – 4pm and is £5 for adults and £4 for concessions.
