Discover more about the history of where you live and what the future holds for a local historic water mill at four special events.

Mickle Trafford Water Mill is the focus of a project aiming to breathe new life into the building and save it from decay.

The newly formed Mickle Trafford Mill Trust is asking local people to get involved with the Mill and consider how best to look after the building and gardens.

People living in the local area are invited to drop-in sessions where the members of the Trust will provide further information and answer questions.

Also up for debate at the drop-in sessions is what the building should be used for in the future and how it can service the local community.

Heritage Conservation consultant Kate Spencer said: “This beautiful historic mill is a very significant part of the history of the area and should be saved.

“We want to hear what local people value about the building, and hear suggestions for protecting its future.”

Drop-in sessions will be held at the Grange Farm (off the A56) from 7-9 pm on the November 18-20 and between 10am-3pm on November 21.
