Cobham Mill, Cobham, Surrey
Painstakingly restored in the early 1990’s, Cobham Mill stands on the banks of the River Mole just a short stroll from the town of Cobham and carries the accolade of being the only fully working watermill left in Surrey. It was once part of a much larger mill complex, all built of that lovely red brick they have in these parts; the setting is lovely, amidst farmland and fields, and with picturesque weirs nearby.
From April to October, on the second Sunday of each month, you can have a look inside the mill, and if you do you’ll see the original gubbins all restored and milling corn again. Think about all the work that went into making that happen – no easy feat. Buy yourself a bag of flour and take it home to make bread with, it’s said to be excellent. Bear in mind that there’s no parking at Cobham Mill; you have to park in town and walk there, but it’s not far and if the sun is shining, it’s rather a nice thing to do.
