About
Step back in time in this restored and fully operational Victorian watermill in North Northumberland. Visitors can explore the building, watch the milling process from grain to flour, and dress up! There are hands-on activities for children and a mouse hunt trail for them to follow. This mill uses green energy to mill stoneground flour, if the river is running too low, or too high, the machinery cannot run. There is still plenty to see and do when you visit. Pay entrance fees in the gift shop, where you can also buy freshly ground floor, local produce, homewares, toys and gifts. Situated in the former grain store is a cafe serving delicious food and drink and Ford & Etal Visitor Centre is just across the road. Unfortunately, due to nature of building, it is not wheelchair accessible. There is free parking on both sides of the river and disabled parking opposite the Mill. Heatherslaw Mill is open seasonally, from late March until the beginning of November.

Lovely little cafe. No frills but reasonably priced, tasty food. Dogs are allowed, which was good. It is upstairs. We were too late to visit the Corn Mill be we popped into the jewellery shop and had a lovely chat with the gentleman in there. Bought some early Christmas presents too. We were also a little too late for the train to Et al. We visited on our way from Ford to Et al and would like to go back in summer to make the most of the trip.

We chanced upon this while waiting for the tide to recede to get on to Holy Island. It was not far away, inland & provided an excellent time filler.
They were not milling that day as the river was too high. However, the Miller was there and provided some excellent information & delighted in sharing her knowledge about how the mill works, different types of flour milled, and how the river influences the mill.
The flour & other items were available to buy.
It was an excellent & informative visit.
The cafe was lovely & cosy too.

So much to see and do here. Highly recommend. We hadn't realised quite how much there was until we got there.

Soda Bread workshop was a great couple of hours spent at the Mill making bread. . While the bread was baking we had a very informative tour of the mill. Didn’t leave before buying some flour to take home.

We were told that this was the first bread workshop and I think the Mill should be well pleased with the results of their efforts on setting this up! Pauline led the workshop in a professional and friendly way. It was great!

Amazing place, but astoundingly, on one of the busiest weekends of the year at Easter, the Mill isn’t working, because people with dogs would be here, at such a busy time! So, you travel to see a working Mill, but it isn’t working due to people with dogs! Unbelievable!!!!!

Visited after a tremendous amout of rain and as a consequence they weren't able to operate the mill that day. So we were warned before we paid that we wouldn't be seeing the mill in action. We nearly left it to return another time but as the weather was so lousy decided to stay. Am so glad we did. Despite not being in operation, the on-duty miller made it so interesting. Loads of knowledge and enthusiasm. Can't wait to go back when the wheel is operating.

And if you make your own bread at home....this is the place to go for some supplies!

This is my type of attraction - living archeology. The mill was recommissioned after falling into disuse and now can be seen fully operational (except we went in a drought and there was not enough water for the wheel). The miller was a fount of information and brought the whole process alive.
The shop was full of milled flours as well as the souvenirs, and I have already made a loaf using its wholemeal flour.
Also on the site is a silhouette cutter and pottery.
