Important work has been taking place at Worsbrough Mill

Important work has been taking place at Worsbrough Mill to support its sustainability through the challenges of COVID, and to make vital changes to the future, with the support of the government’s Cultural Recovery Fund.


A big thank you to everyone who is involved.


Our millwrights have been working hard to make sure the mill machinery is still good condition after what has been a year of busy production. They’re carrying out vital repairs too.


Inside mill cottage, exciting alterations are being made. The old millers’ bedrooms are becoming new staff and volunteer bases. A new walkthrough gallery will share the story of the Mill, past and present. A beautiful new shop has been made too, with a one-way system to enable social distancing when required. Important changes are happening at the Millers Tearoom too.

Lots of planning is taking place, to really make sure that the Mill can continue to be such a valued place for Barnsley people, and visitors to our borough, and to continue to be a flourishing traditional mill for the 21st century.
