The Mill

Trafford Mill is a Grade II listed, water mill building.  Students are welcomed at The Mill to help with small community projects and take part in activities that help to support the local community around Mickle Trafford. 

Students have been involved in planting and growing a variety of vegetables in the gardens and really enjoy watching the vegetables grow and then taking them to sell.

We have also been involved in making coal, for the summer BBQ’s and fires for cold winter nights, and we loved it (even getting covered in soot)!

Students have been taught basic fire skills, how to chop and prepare wood and then made tasty bacon butties on the open fire!

The Mill is a great experience for students and staff alike. It gives students time away from the traditional classroom environment whilst teaching students valuable skills and crafts.
