Sarehole Mill and its collection

Sarehole Mill

The Sarehole Mill is a 250 year old watermill with a distinctive silhouette with its steam engine and its chimney. The Sarehole Mill is most famous for its association with author J.R.R Tolkien, who lived very close to the mill and used it for inspiration. The Sarehole Mill also has connections with English manufacturer Matthew Boulton, who leased the mill between 1756 and 1761, using it to produce sheet metal used for button manufacturing.
