In celebration of the National Mills Weekend, the National Trust’s Stainsby Mill will be open to visitors from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th May.

Visitors to Stainsby Mill will get the chance to experience the sights and sounds of a working flour mill by joining regular tours around the mill where a team of volunteers will bring the mill to life.

The current Stainsby Mill was rebuilt in 1850 by the 6th Duke of Devonshire, but there is a long history of milling on the same site dating back to c1216. The mill, and surrounding villages, were bought by Bess of Hardwick in 1590 and has been part of the historic Hardwick estate ever since.
