Wayside Museum and Trewey Watermill

An evocative collection of 5000+ artefacts collected over the past 75 years, vividly portraying the lives of the people who lived and worked this ancient landscape in and around Zennor in the far west of Cornwall from 3000BC to the 1950s, all set in areas within the garden of a 16th century Miller's cottage.

A museum like no other!

In 2009/2010 the granite watermill has been painstakingly restored to full working order, using traditional materials and skills. After 150 years, the mill is again producing fine 100% stoneground wholemeal flour using original 19th century machinery and rare granite millstones.
