Parndon Mill

Just to the east of Roydon, on the edge of Harlow and beside the River Stort, you'll find Parndon Mill, a hub of creativity. Exhibitions, sales of art from the resident artists, events, classes and workshops all take place within this historic mill - in beautiful surroundings. Since the sixties it has been occupied by artists and craftsmen who have gradually restored the premises.

Parndon Mill provides workspace for artists, craftspeople, designers and architects who have the opportunity to share ideas and use their different skills to collaborate on creative work. They also run classes to pass on their skills.

Find out more about the history of Parndon Mill here.
