Event description

Description

The nature reserve at Sandford Mill is the former Borough of Chelmsford waterworks and is now an Industrial Museum in magical rural setting just minutes away from the busy city centre.


Originally a medieval watermill, on a river spur off the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, the site was converted to a waterworks in the 1920s and developed further in 1950. In more recent years the area around the old waterworks has become an exclusive secluded nature reserve, which is only now visited on special occasions. The rewards are a habit and wildlife that sees very little human intervention. We are lucky therefore to be able to offer special guided tours of this reserve which is only open for a few hours once or twice a year.
