Combe Mill was once the saw mill of Blenheim Estate and also the workshop and blacksmiths’ forge. Its rare beam engine and waterwheel have been preserved and on Steaming Events can be seen in action driving original woodworking machinery via line shafting and belts.
In the upstairs pattern shop can be seen working demonstrations of various trade and craftsmen’s tools including wheelwrighting, carpentry and pattern making. A working collection of historic tower clocks is also here.
In the riverside picnic area visitors can enjoy the tranquillity of the river Evenlode.
The Foreman’s Office contains much of interest to the social historian.
We also have a children’s trail to find Millie the cat and a well equpped tinkering area for hands-on fun. 10.30am-4.30pm. £3.50, family £11, under-5s free.
