Photoshoot at Worsbrough Mill & Country Park


Here at The Yorkshire Collective we love to celebrate everything about our local culture and heritage in everything we do, including our photo shoots. To show off the amazing products from the TYC Collection we decided to take a trip to Worsbrough Mill and Country Park, just a short distance from Barnsley town centre.

Worsbrough Mill is a 17th Century working water mill set in 240 acres of country park.

Visitors can tour the working water mill and learn about the milling process. The mill produces a range of premium quality organic flours and associated products for trade and retail customers using water power from the River Dove. 

The 60 acre Georgian reservoir at the heart of the park was built to feed canals that supported massive industrial expansion in the area. The reservoir attracts plenty of local wildlife and is a popular spot for anglers and birdwatchers.

An unusually sunny February morning offered us a pleasant few hours shooting and exploring the mill, finishing off with a stop at the Miller's Tea Room to have some delicious Lotus Biscoff cake and a cup of coffee.

The shoot went smoothly, only with a few interruptions from the many dogs being walked through the park that we just had to stop and say hello to.

Admission to the Museum and Country Park is free although some events and guided tours may charge a small entry fee. There is a donation box located within the Mill Shop.
