The Mill is open as usual

The Mill is open as usual while Farnham Road is closed for resurfacing work on 11th, 12th, 15th and 16th April 9am-4pm. Please tell the workmen on site you are visiting us and they will allow access when safe to do so. The best access is from Elstead village. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by Surrey Council’s essential works.


The Mill's story dates back to 1647, when the original building burned down. That same year, the Mill had been occupied by Oliver Cromwell's roundheads.

A new mill was built in 1648 and is believed to have functioned as a corn mill until the late 18th Century.

Later, in the 19th Century, it was acquired by the Appleton family and used for making braid for military uniforms. The 1851 census shows that 100 people worked here, which perhaps explains why the Cupola on the roof was installed around that time the bell used to call people to work!

The Mill

A place of real history, the Mill was used as a hospital during World War II. Visit our mezzanine level and you can see for yourself the graffiti scribblings left by recovering soldier.
