Worsbrough Mill Museum

A 17th century working water mill, Worsbrough Mill is still grinding wheat in the traditional way today. Worsbrough Milll white and wholemeal flours are traditionally stoneground on a pair of 19th century ‘French Burr’ stones powered by a cast iron water wheel, installed in 1865.

Visitors can explore the water powered flour mill with the Miller and discover how the mill works and watch as the waterwheel drives all the machinery.

Worsbrough Mill is also home to a rare Hornsby hot-bulb oil engine, formally from Sykehouse Windmill, which has been rebuilt in the engine room. Visitors can see demonstrations of the engine in action, using water and steam to turn the historic millstones.

Tours of the Mill and demonstrations of the Hot Bulb Engine take place regularly throughout the year. For more information on tours and events taking place in the Mill please visit the events page or refer to a copy of Barnsley Museums seasonal Events Guide.
