The museum has a small car park c. 100m from the mill, although there is plenty of parking on the road and dead-end opposite the mill, and two dedicated disabled parking spaces are due to be painted on the road close to the mill entrance. Coaches can drop off at the mill and there is space to park in the broad junction with the dead-end road opposite.
The only part of the mill not accessible to wheelchair users is the tower and the upper floor of the Upper Warehouse.
