UK»England»Cambridgeshire»Sacrewell Farm

In 1086 the Doomsday shows evidence that there were 3 Watermills in the Wittering area, the mill at Sacrewell Farm was probably one of them. In January 1964 The William Scott Abbott Trust was formed with aims to advance all forms of agricultural practices on the working Farm and to provide educational facilities for the general public. Whether you want to jump on the tractor and enjoy a trip around the farm or perhaps go back in time by exploring the working 18th Century Watermill or enjoy long walks taking advantage of the flora and fauna around the site, it is all here for the visitor to enjoy. In 2007 the National Shire Horse Centre opened in partnership with the Shire Horse Society with itsaim to increase awareness of this magnificent breed. There are now 10 Shires based at Sacrewell Farm where visitors are able to see the day to day activities carried out by this traditionally hard working breed.
