A little bit off the beaten track, but well worth the effort, Barry Mill is a fascinating building, an din a beautiful location.
We visited on a weekday, so had the place to ourselves for much of the visit. We were given a personal tour by guide, Carolyn Peters, who is an absolute encyclopaedia of information about mills and their engineering - I've visited water mills before, but never really appreciated the complex mechanisms, and why some of the tasks were carried out in a specific order. This tour really allowed us to understand, and enjoy, so much more. Nothing was too much trouble for Carolyn, and she added so much to the visit.
I believe that the local Friends of Barry Mill put on some events for both children and adults, if you can time your visit to coincide.
