Outwood Mill recetnly had a visit from a local Scout troop based in Caterham.
The 12th Caterham (Parsons Pightle) troop came to the mill for an evening of fun and learning and by all accounts thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Amongst other things they:
- Milled Grain into Flour By Hand
- Turned the Mill into wind by hand
- Looked out from the Bin floor towards london
- Learned how the sails were set
- Learned about the life of A Miller
We took some photos of the troop that evening and with thier kind permission you can see them in our Gallery, on our Flickr account and on our new and shiny Google+ social network.
Its that time of year again when the Outwood Village show is upon once again!

For the first time in a number of years the Village Show, to be held this year on Saturday 3rd September, will begin and end at Outwood Post Mill.
Historically the Outwood Village Parade always used to begin at Outwood Mill, however for the last few years the Windmill at Outwood hasn’t been available for this to happen. However, the new operators, Ray & Tracy, have opened up the Windmill and its grounds once again so that the procession and its participants can once again meet and begin the day at the Windmill.
More details of this will be published both in the forthcoming edition of the Outwood News but also in the Outwood Village Show guide which is being prepared as we speak.
Outwood Village Get Together at Outwood Mill
Mr. & Mrs. Windy Miller (aka Ray & Tracy) would like to cordially invite you all residents of Outwood Village to a village “Pitch In Picnic” at Outwood Windmill on Saturday July 9th, from 2pm onwards.
As many of you know we’ve recently taken up residence at the Windmill and we’d like to get to know all of our fellow villagers better. It’s an opportunity for everyone to participate and come together by bringing something sweet or savoury along to share with everyone else (Hence “Pitch In Picnic”). Additionally perhaps a bottle (or three) of your favourite beverage would add to the occasion.
Of course it’s a great way to get acquainted with the Windmill if you haven’t had a chance to look around it. Children of all ages are of course welcome. We’ll have some entertainment and activities lined up for the day so there’ll be plenty of fun and things to tire out the kids (and the adults too!).
This is an “Outwood Only” event and we’d ask that you would drop us a line at this email address – firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can get an idea of numbers.
There is no charge for admission as this is a community event designed to help the village come together and have a day of fun and get reconnected with its oldest resident and grand old lady – Outwood Mill
We look forward to meeting you all and enjoying a fun afternoon with you.
