There is step-free access to the visitor centre from the rear of the mill.
The main entrance has a low doorway and a section of uneven cobbles.
An interpretive display is on the ground floor.
The video presentation room is up a modern staircase of 14 steps with a handrail on one side.
The mill is a separate building, with a narrow door, reached via cobbled paths.
Upper levels of the mill are reached by a steep, wooden historic staircase with rope handrails.
The garden behind the mill has level access to the waterwheel. The main viewing area has three stone steps with no handrail.
Miller’s Field, part of the car park area, is uneven grassland with a fish pond and benches.
Access to the mill pond is via a steep stone staircase with a handrail on one side at one end of the mill building. Steps may be slippery when wet.
