Eling Experience reopens after £1.3 million improvements
A partnership of New Forest District Council (NFDC) and Totton and Eling Town Council has invested in the future after securing a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, which included work on all four parts of The Eling Tide Mill Experience. This included essential conservation works of the mill, extending and developing the visitor centre to create a new learning centre and café, and improving access to outdoor areas of Goatee Beach and Bartley Water.
Visitors can now see the power of the tide turning the wheel and millstones. There is an interactive exhibition of its history, walks along the Eling Creek shoreline and a brand new Mill Cafe.
