I often ride my bike from Godmanchester and pass the mill, it's a great little spot and has beautiful rivers and walks/rides around it. Some lovely pubs close by too. Close to St Ives and Huntingdon.

Car parking for about 40 cars, but can get full. Mill is interesting for adults and young kids. National Trust tea shop and toilets. Bank side and meadow walking with lovely, varied scenery.
