COMBE MILL in STEAM Sun 18th June 2017

Theme: Barn Engines and Horticultural Machinery & Tractors (Vintage and Classic)

We will be running all of our steam and water powered machinery in this restored Sawmill and Workshop that once served the Blenheim Palace Estate.

Have a go at making a poker in our blacksmiths’ forge and relax by the River Evenlode in the riverside picnic area. See how country houses and farms would have powered their machinery. This hands-on Museum takes pride in making you think and learn through trying your hand at making things and seeing how machinery works. See our working Beam Engine and Line Shafting together with the restored Waterwheel. Demonstrations of craftsmen's tools plus a visit to the River Evenlode and forest. There is a Millie-the-mill-cat trail for the children to win a `Millie` badge.

Enjoy this working industrial Museum with its late 19th Century Steam Beam Engine, working Waterwheel, Dual Blacksmiths Forge. There is plenty to enjoy and do with refreshments available in our Riverside Tea Room. .... a place to discover.
