Mickle Trafford water mill
The Mickle Trafford Mill Trust was established in 2015 to find a new use for Mickle Trafford Water Mill. We are in the process of applying for Charitable Status and hope to soon become a Building Preservation Trust. The first step on our journey is to find out what the local community would like the building to be used for. Please take time to give us your views, make a comment and become part of the Mill Community.
ALL about the mill
Trafford Mill is an 18th century corn mill, situated on Warrington Road, Mickle Trafford. It is owned by United Utilities and surrounded by land owned by Grange Farm. It is currently leased on an unofficial basis by Mickle Trafford Mill Trust, a company established to renovate the structure and find a viable use for the future of the Mill. The building is currently partially used by Wild Area, a Charitable Interest Company, that provides educational activities for young people and adults with additional needs.
what's going on
The Mill provides numerous volunteering opportunities in a range of conservation and art activities.
We are now in the process of creating the new volunteer programme.
Details of the new activities will be updated here soon, so watch this space!
Mickle Trafford Mill Trust
The Mickle Trafford Mill Building Preservation Trust is comprised of local volunteers, conservation and heritage professionals who want to save this important historic site from further dereliction and find a viable new use for its future.
The Mill already hosts a variety of conservation education activities. We aim to continue this important work and further establish the Mill as a centre for community activity and education for future generations of Mickle Trafford and Cheshire.
