Come and visit Keynsham’s Grade II* listed Albert Mill to learn about the area’s significant industrial history. Explore the historic mill room, water wheel, sluice gate and stepped weir, and enjoy the mill’s stunning gardens.

Albert Mill, a Grade II* listed site, was probably built in 1733/34 by the Bristol Brass Company. Later, the site was used as a cotton mill, grist mill and logwood mill, where it processed natural dyes for textiles.

Though converted to flats in 1992, the site retains two sets of grinding stones as well as a historic mill room housing the original mill wheel and log grinding mill. The unique water wheel, still visible in the garden, overlooks the natural environment of the River Chew with its three weirs, mill leat and sluice gate. You are welcome to rest a while in the garden, enjoy refreshments, and soak in the historic surroundings.

Information boards and historic photographs will be displayed, and volunteers from Albert Mill Management Committee will be on hand to answer questions.
