Direction and Transport

The mill is located off Caxton Road, Bourn CB23 2SU between the villages of Bourn and Caxton. There is a small car park close to the mill which is open from dawn to dusk on Caxton Road. This is just to the west of the turning to Bourn Mill Cottage. There is a grass path leading to the Mill from the rear of the car park.

There are lovely walks in the surrounding countryside with a footpath link from Bourn village to the mill as well as a footpath from the centre of Cambourne leading to the mill.

For information about bus services:

Access to the mill is via a grass path. We suggest disabled visitors, use the public footpath and gate via the old Miller’s cottage. Access to the interior of the mill is by a steep external ladder.
