Path Head Water Mill

A heritage site and working museum with a restored and operational water wheel -at Summerhill, Blaydon on Tyne

Path Head Water Mill offers a great day out for all the family and also for schools who can benefit from reduced entry to the mill and the wealth of information and experiences which provide a key link-in with the current National Curriculum.

Come along and see the changes and amazing progress made to date in restoring this once derelict site in Blaydon, Tyne and Wear, into a local educational and community resource. We're just ten minutes from the Metro Centre.

The Mill is located in a tranquil dell, adjacent to meadows and wooded walks with picnic facilities and a safe garden area.

Visitors to The Mill can sketch or paint in the peace and quiet, enjoying the natural surroundings of the building and the millpond. It provides an opportunity to escape the hustle of the city and enjoy the views and wildlife whilst appreciating the past. Vintage tractor weekends, heritage weekends, craft fairs, a folk festival and other events are held throughout the year.
