Summer/Autumn Events 2019

You missed a treat if you did not visit this Easter

But you have another exciting steaming event ahead on Sunday 19 May
when our theme is Barn Engines and Horticultural Machinery

Community group and school bookings are welcome and, of course, new volunteers are always welcome on any Wednesday.

Don’t be the last to discover our amazing hidden gem of a place.

Can’t visit the Mill? Why not invite us to your group?

Are you responsible for finding interesting talks for a club or society? Do you find it difficult to visit Combe Mill with its legacy of working industrial engines? In either or both these cases, why not let us bring the Mill to you?

Mill Society Member, Nick Russell, gives a talk ‘The Mill on the Evenlode’, a history of the Blenheim Palace Sawmill and Combe Yard of which it is the most important part. Developments in the Yard were closely related to the history of the Blenheim Estate, the fortunes of the Dukes of Marlborough, and more recently the activities of members of the Mill Society who have restored and run the Mill. The talk is accompanied by a digital version of Victorian lantern slides.
