The Saturday before last, we decided to cross the border into South Yorkshire and visit Worsbrough Mill and Country Park.
The mill is a 17th century working water mill set in 240 acres of parkland.
The first recording of the mill is in the Domesday book of 1086, though the oldest part of the mill still standing today dates from about 1625. This is the part which houses the waterwheel.
You're able to go inside and see all the workings and there's great information boards which tell you about the process.
Water power comes from the River Dove. The mill now produces a range of premium quality organic flours and associated products for trade and retail customers. There's a new shop on the site where flour and gifts can be purchased.
We were lucky with the weather when we visited, beautiful blue skies and just look at the blossom waiting to burst.
It seemed the world and his wife were outdoors enjoying the sunshine but, as the country park is so large, we had plenty of space to ourselves.
We took a walk along the side of the reservoir. As you can see, it was rather muddy. We passed a few dog walkers but it was so tranquil with only the sound of birdsong breaking the silence.
Worsbrough Reservoir was built in 1804 to supply water to the new Worsbrough spur of the Dearne and Dove canal.
I'm not sure if you can walk the whole way round the reservoir, I'm sure you can, but we doubled back on ourselves as it would have been much too far for Archie's little legs. He doesn't walk very far these days before he gets tired.
The reservoir is now home to many different species of insects, mammals, birds and flowers.
We stood for a while watching a cormorant, he was diving for fish but I was much too slow to get a photo, so I'll leave you with this photo of a juvenile swan instead.
It was a lovely way to pass a couple of hours on a sunny day.
