Cole Bank Road, Birmingham, B13 0BD
Sarehole Mill is a 250 year old working watermill famous for its association with author J.R.R Tolkien.
There has been a mill on this site since 1542, but the current building dates from the mid-18th Century. In the 1850s a steam engine was installed and a chimney built, which provides Sarehole Mill with its distinctive silhouette. The mill has two waterwheels, one of which is operational and is used to grind wheat every Wednesday and Sunday, water levels permitting. Sare(w)hole meal flour is sold from the mill shop. The mill has connections with Matthew Boulton, who leased Sarehole Mill between 1756 and 1761 and used it as a flatting mill, producing sheet metal used for button manufacturing.
