One of only two surviving working watermills in Birmingham, it was constructed around 1750, although there was known to be a mill here as early as the Tudor period. It's tranquil rural atmosphere and the millpond provides a haven for wildlife including kingfishers, herons and a range of other species.Today the mill is best known for its links with author JRR Tolkien who spent part of his childhood nearby and who used the site and its surroundings as the inspiration for the Shire in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
