Bishops Lydeard Mill and Rural Life Museum
Tel: 01823 432151
The watermill has been renovated over the past few years and was officially opened by the town Mayor on Saturday 10th May 2003.
Work has been done to restore the mill so that it is a working mill. Although we now know that there was a second wheel (used for fulling) on the site there are no plans to replace that. Among the many traditional trades and crafts displayed are the wheelwright's shop, transported from Devon and preserved exactly as it was left on the day the owner shut up shop, and the equally authentic Blacksmith's shop. These are not the only trades that are featured, so why not make a visit to check out what else is on view?
There is much to see and do in the village of Bishops Lydeard. Allow at least half a day so you can relax in our Dusty Miller's tea room, with a range of home made cakes, soft drinks, ice creams and confectionery, before visiting other attractions such as the West Somerset Railway.
