On the third Sunday of each month between March and October we hold a Steaming Event during which we raise steam and run the belt driven machinery.
Volunteers demonstrate all the crafts and skills that were once performed at Combe Mill and the blacksmith's forge is lit and you can have a go at making a poker.
Model Engineering at the Mill
Come along and experience the power of steam and water. Enjoy seeing engineering models at their best and through them explore engineering principles at work in all aspects of this restored sawmill and workshop. This hands-on museum takes pride in making you think and learn through trying your hand at making things and seeing how machinery works.
