Alderford Water Mill - Heritage Open Day

Alderford water mill is open on the second Sunday of each month from April through to October.

Restored, Grade II listed timber building, typical of rural water mills and one of the best preserved in Essex. The water wheel often runs on open days.

The earliest known reference to a mill on this site dates from 1597. The current mill building is 19th century, with an earlier undershot waterwheel – probably 17th century.
