On the 9th and 10th of May, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings are hosting their annual National Mills weekend. The annual festival celebrates the UK's milling heritage and 'offers everyone the chance to visit windmills and watermills that are not normally open to the public and to take part in special events'. This year, Knockando Woolmill are inviting visitors to the Woolmill to hear from Nathaniel and Jolyon Havinden, who helped coordinate and carry out the restoration of the Woolmill's Victorian machinery and Waterwheel. On Saturday the 9th May Nathaniel and Jolyon will be in the Woolmill garden by the waterwheel, giving informal talks at 11am, 12pm and 1pm.
