Millhouses Corn Mill in Millhouses Park dates back before the 13th century and is now the last corn mill in Sheffield. The mill was donated to the Sheffield City Council and has been used as a depot for the park from 1950.
The restoration work on the mill has now started and this questionnaire survey is to investigate how people feel about the suggestions proposed for the mill to be a historical, educational learning centre for the public.
A team of Masters students from Sheffield Hallam University are working on an exciting project on behalf of Millhouses Park to produce ideas for the use of the Mill.

“I thought you might like to take this photo to the next volunteer’s meeting. It shows some members of Trinity Day Care Trust with wives and helpers.
We enjoyed a stroll through the park reminiscing about the old days there and noting the recent developments and improvements. Everyone commented on how lovely the park looks, especially at the moment with the profusion of colour and the beauty of the wild flower gardens.
The eight wheelchair users easily got round the sensory garden, and while the culinary experts were crushing, sniffing and naming, others were merely dreaming of Sunday dinner!
The time and effort put in by you and the other volunteers is noted, and is very much appreciated. Thank you.”
A very big thanks to all who helped make yesterdays Duck Race successful, I hope you will see from the attached pictures the magic of our little Fish Pass Stream continues to captivate, involve, entertain and bring a smile to a very many faces and add that little something extra to a day out in Millhouses Park.
Donations for the day were £84 which are going towards the Central Climbing/Balancing/sliding block that is to be restored for another 10 years popular use.
