The present mill is a late 18th or early 19th century
rebuilding in brick, timber and stone on the site of earlier mills.
It had two waterwheels however, only one remains and was restored
From the 1930's, due to low water flow, an oil engine was needed
to give power with electricity supplying the other machinery. Much
of the machinery is still visible inside the mill. On the outside
an eel trap was fitted into the sluice gate.
Bromham Mill is open Friday, Saturday & Sunday, from 10am -
4pm (from April to December). Admission during opening hours is
free and the café sells fresh coffee and home made cakes.
A number of public events and exhibitions take place throughout
the year including National Apple Day in October.
Bromham Mill can be hired for private functions including birthday
parties, weddings and exhibitions. Weddings can be accommodated in
the building or in a beautiful marquee within the picturesque
ground. Meadow and picnic area are open all day every day till
