Bishops Lydeard Mill is a beautiful watermill set in a country village - perfectly restored to working order. Among the many traditional trades and crafts displayed are the wheelwright's shop, transported from Devon and preserved exactly as it was left on the day the owner shut up shop, and the equally authentic Blacksmith's shop. Another aspect of the Mill and Rural Life Museum presentations are the models depicting the many types of mills that exist plus various scenic displays and some 30 carriages and wagons.
