This interesting example of a water-powered corn mill dates from around 1625, and a steam mill was added in the 19th century. Now converted to oil power and restored to full working condition, the mill still continues to produce stone ground flour. Amongst the exhibits are good examples of water wheel driven machinery, sluices and hammers. The mill dam is also intact. This is also a great place to walk or picnic; Worsbrough Mill is set in 200 acres of country park and is adjacent to a large reservoir. A wide variety of bird life can be seen around the reservoir and leisurely walks may be enjoyed in the country park. The mill can be reached in a 15 minute bus or taxi ride from Sheffield city centre.
