More than 100 people went along to Topcliffe Mill in Meldreth for an open day organised for National Mills Weekend.

The disused water mill, at North End opposite Holy Trinity Church, has been on the site for centuries but is now privately owned.

However as part of the national initivative, The Meldreth Local History Group organised for the site to be opened to the public at the weekend and shared information and photos of the history of the site.

Kathryn Betts said: “It went really well.

“We had more than 100 people come along, most had read about it in the Crow.

“Some shared their own experiences or their family’s experiences of the mill.

“We had really positive feedback, and people were really grateful to have the opportunity to look around.”

Kathryn added that she was sure the event would go ahead next year.
