I grew up on Sarehole Road back in the 1970,s and 80,s, my back garden backed onto the park and I have many happy memories. A couple of years ago I took my children to the mill and they loved the place as much as I do so when I saw your request on Midlands today I had to help. I hope my family and many other families can make some lovely memories to treasure in the future.
The Trustees of The Tolkien Society are very pleased to be able to support Birmingham Museums Trust's Sarehole Mill, with the Mill team's project to restore the water wheel and return the Mill to flour-milling again, given JRR Tolkien's childhood links to the Mill and the surrounding area.
This project offers rewards in return for your donation.
