from the eighteen century though the Mill itself is probably as old as the Abbey

and rose beds are really vibrant in summer and there are great views over the Ham
to the Malvern Hills.

much in appearance since it was built.

to wheelchair users and the paths are level.
They are owned and run by the Borough Council who can be contacted at the Council

when the paths are slippery after the floods have receded.
