I last visited around five years ago and had expected the promised craft shops to be open only to find it in the same, slightly run down condition with no craft shops. There is a café which made reasonable cream tea. The war museum doesn't appear to have been updated since the day it was originally set up so was all a bit grubby and tired. We didn't see any one in the Mill itself so didn't get any explanation. We purchased a bag of bird seed and a bag of fish food. My husband took the fish food but only saw two fish and they weren't interested so he fed it to the birds instead. I was delighted with my bag of bird food as was immediately surrounded by a flock of ducks, geese, peacocks and doves. Luckily I'm not fazed by birds landing on me which is fortunate as I had them on my head, arms and handbag.
I don't think we will bother going again and can't say it would need to be at the top of your list of things to do on the Isle of Wight.
