Exciting changes are happening at Worsbrough Mill with the opening of a new shop, visitor space and micro bakery, amongst other changes.
Earlier this year the Mill received a grant from the Culture Recovery Fund which has made important developments to the site possible.
The money was used to create a new visitor space and shop, a new volunteer hub within a derelict historic space for the Mill’s award-winning volunteers to use, a micro bakery which will regularly sell bread made from flour milled on site and extend the very popular on-site café to enable more visitors to sit inside.
The transformed shop space is a treasure trove for budding bakers, cooking connoisseurs and wildlife enthusiasts with lots of unique and ethically sourced gift ideas on offer.
As well as funding important enhancements to the well-loved visitor attraction it also allowed important checks of the mill’s historic machinery, which has been working at full capacity throughout the pandemic, to take place.
Cllr Tim Cheetham, Cabinet Spokesperson for Place (Regeneration and Culture) said: “Worsbrough Mill and Country Park is such an asset to the borough offering both a wonderful day out but also an important home to significant wildlife and habitats. It’s visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year and to have developments such as this, which will make it an even more special place to visit, is great to see.”
