Cobham Mill Elmbridge Surrey
About Cobham Mill
This picturesque early 19th century mill, is situated in delightful surroundings on the banks of the River Mole. It is Grade II listed and is the only surviving fully working watermill in Surrey. It was originally part of a much larger mill complex that once stood alongside. Its rural location next to the nearby weirs, the views over the adjacent fields and farmland, and the variety of local wildlife, make it ideally placed for leisurely exploration..
Come and discover how, after having been abandoned, vandalised, and allowed to fall into disrepair for decades, the mill has been restored and brought back to life. Now, with what remained of the original machinery recovered, carefully restored and reassembled, and some replacement parts manufactured, the milling of corn can once again be demonstrated.
Visiting the Mill – Admission is Free
The mill is operated and maintained by volunteers. The unavoidable costs of maintenance and repair are met by The Cobham Millers with the help and support of The Environment Agency and generous donations from visitors and the people of Cobham. There is limited selection of souvenirs that can be bought at the Mill. Also, flour produced by the mill, is occasionally available.
Normal Opening Times
The mill is open on the second Sunday of the month from April to October 2pm–5pm.
The milling of corn is carried out during these openings, and a short video presentation about the mill and its restoration is shown at intervals.
Extra Opening Day
Saturday 14th September 2019
The Cobham Mill will be open for Cobham Heritage Day on Saturday 14th September. The Cobham Mill is the only working water mill in Surrey and will be open in the afternoon to provide demonstrations of how corn was milled using the power of the river Mole.
