Altogether a charming market town.

    Redbournbury water mill lies two miles north of St. Albans on the old Roman road, Watling Street, in the hamlet of Redbournbury. Although only a stone's throw from the main road it remains an unspoilt corner, little changed for hundreds of years. The farmhouse and surrounding buildings date back to the fifteenth century which, together with the mill, creates an area of historic interest. Last used for flour milling in the 1950's, the mill is at the end of a massive rebuilding and restoration project, which has taken over 10 years to complete. It is now established as a museum and the only working mill on the River Ver. Open Sunday afternoons, mid-April to early Otcober, 2pm-5.30pm.
