Claythorpe Watermill

Aby, near Alford

Claythorpe Watermill is a small, family run attraction set in the grounds of an 18th century watermill. The mill last ran in the late 1970s but you can still see the remaining millworks and learn more about its varied industrial history. Today the pace of life is slower. Enjoy seeing the animals including pheasants, runner ducks, guinea pigs, rabbits, pygmy goats and ferrets. Sit by the river, soak up the atmosphere or unleash the kids on the swings. Relax with coffee and cake or lunch in the onsite café, which is open to all (no need for a ticket to the grounds). Make the most of riverside dining through the summer evenings, and fun-filled outdoor movie nights in the late summer.
