VISITING WHITEMILL



LOCATION

Ordnance Survey: ST958006
Sat Nav: BH21 4BX

Many visitors find Whitemill entirely by accident (normally whilst en-route to the much better publicised Kingston Lacy House) and only learn of our existence as they drive past the gate and see the National Trust signs.

Whitemill can be found about a mile to the east of Sturminster Marshall on an unclassified road linking the A350 with the B3082.
The B3082 itself is the famous Kingston Lacy Beech Avenue.

Whitemill is not easily reached by public transport, most of our visitors arrive by car though a few hardy souls do come by bike.

Arriving by Car

From the north, make your way down the A350 to Sturminster Marshall and turn left at the crossroads (signposted Shapwick).

From the east or west you'll probably be coming along the A31, so turn north up the A350 and turn right at the crossroads (signposted Shapwick).

Now follow the road through the village, past the church, and then for about a mile out the other side. As you crest the bridge over the river you can see the mill on your left. Please be very careful on the bridge as it is a blind summit.

Alternatively, if you're coming from the Wimborne direction (perhaps after visiting Kingston Lacy House) or down from Blandford make your way onto the B3082 Wimborne to Blandford road and turn off when you see signposts for Sturminster Marshall. Follow that road all the way down to the end, turn left and then left again to get to the car park.

The car park is about 100m north of the mill.
Disabled parking for one car is available right outside the mill gate.
