Tel : 01981 550225 www.postonmill.co.uk
Mon Nov 30th - Mon Dec 7th 2020
There has been a mill at Poston for centuries. As long ago as 1588 records of the Sheriff’s Court refer to “…profits of the mill at Poston…” and the contents of a nearby barn which included “…five bushels of oats, two loads of hay and certain loads of straw. Today Poston Mill, situated in the heart of Herefordshire, is a 35 acre holiday park with extensive walks, an attached pub, a shop and fishing in the adjoining river Dore or further afield on the Wye.
Buses run from the park entrance with routes to Hay-On-Wye, famous for its books and an eclectic mix of crafts, galleries, and restaurants or further afield to Brecon nestled in the shelter of the Brecon Beacons, or Hereford with its famous Mappa Mundi.
There are numerous castles and churches just bursting with fabulous architecture and history. Bacton church is the resting place of Queen Elizabeth I lady’s maid, Blanche Parry. All along the Marches there are castles both ruined and still standing, Grosmont, Hayland Ludlow are just a few to consider.
We are still planning on having our Christmas Dinner on Saturday 5th December at the Mill Restaurant which can accommodate us in groups of six, although clearly given current COVID regulations, we would be unable to fully mix socially or have live entertainment or dancing. We are in continuous dialogue with the pub and will be in a position to provide menus and further details in the coming weeks, The cost of the meal will be circa £20.
