Mill Green Watermill, Hertfordshire

Mill Green ExteriorThis local history museum for the Welwyn Hatfield District is housed in what was for centuries the home of the millers who worked in the adjoining watermill. The watermill is fully restored and operational. It probably stands on the site of one of four Hatfield mills listed in the Domesday Book. Mill Green Museum is managed by Welwyn Hatfield Council Leisure Services. The cluster of historic buildings here and the surrounding grounds are a beautiful oasis in our busy world. Explore our three higgledy piggledy exhibition rooms packed with their colourful displays of local art and exhibitions about our fascinating history. The Welwyn Hatfield Museum Service is based here and holds the social history collection for the district. Look out for details on the many art and crafts workshops and fun activities for children and adults we run throughout the year.
