Mill Green Watermill and Museum is a working 18th century watermill in Hatfieldmarker, Hertfordshiremarker, Englandmarker. It is managed by Welwyn Hatfield Council and admission is free.

Its heart is a working watermill, with eighteenth and nineteenth century wooden machinery restored to full working order. It's in regular use to grind organic wheat for a local bakery and for retail sale. Visitors can explore the mill, see it working and chat to the miller on duty. Flour is sold in various sizes.

The mill also houses the local museum in the old miller's house. It houses galleries such as the Miller's Kitchen display and a 1930's dining room in the style of the first houses to be built in the nearby Welwyn Garden City. Exhibitions are family-friendly and this summer's 'Hatfield Histories' features a 1950s interior.

From Easter to September on Sundays, tea, coffee and cakes are served in a small cafe with tables in the next door garden. Takeaway style Kenco tea and coffee with biscuits is also on sale all year round from the museum shop.

The Mill sells freshly ground organic wholemeal flour and a loaf made from it can be bought from Simmons Bakers at their local branches around Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City.

Activities for children run every school holiday and the museum welcomes school groups, researchers, and volunteer helpers.

The museum opening hours are:

Tuesday-Friday 10:00-17:00Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays: 14:00-17:00

The watermill will always be manned and running on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays, and is open to view at all times above.

The museum service also runs Welwyn Roman Baths, about 5 miles away in Welwyn village.
