The Mill offers a mixture of land and water activities suitable for year 3 pupils and above. On land we offer team games, a low ropes course, outdoor and indoor climbing walls, a Jacob's ladder, a maze of underground tunnels and mountain biking. On the water you can try raft building, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, sit on kayaks, disability sailing or inflatable fun.
