Recently someone has deliberately damaged the box, used for mooring fees, on the outside of the Visitor Centre door. Fortunately, whatever money was in the box had been removed a couple of days before. We are hoping to have this replaced by Thursday 18th March 2021, in a more secure fashion.
Hardley Mill is maintained as the most active mill, fully restored and is able to pump water, on the Norfolk Broads. The turning sails attract visitors from far and wide.
Mill open to Visitors
The mill is open on Friday and Monday around the weekends from April to September. Admission to the visitor centre is free. Admission to the mill is £3.00 per adult (children 16 years and under are free). The restored mill and visitor centre are accessible to visitors via the Wherryman’s Way footpath or the river side moorings. See the contact us page for further details.
The ‘Friends of Hardley Mill’ (FoHW) support the Trust and commit to the objectives:
- To raise funds for the restoration of the Hardley Mill to full working order and to conserve and maintain it for the public benefit.
- To develop this Grade II listed Heritage building as an educational facility and visitor centre for all people, particularly the young.
- To maintain the landscape, fences, boundary features, walls and structures or apparatus from time to time erected or standing thereon.
There are several events planned in support of the ongoing work at the mill.
Mill opening times
The visitor centre and mill are open as follows:
Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday April to September 10.00 am to 4.00 pm
During the week, there are frequently members of FoHW working at the mill. They will usually be able to show visitors around, but access may be limited depending on the nature of work being carried out – please don’t be offended if it is not always possible to view the mill.
If the sails are turning – we are open.
