How to find Sneath's Mill
There are no local signs to direct visitors to the mill at present but it is close to two local attractions, namely the Long Sutton Butterfly & Wildlife Park and Silverhill Caravan Park. The Peele Community College is also close by. All of these are signposted.
If you travel via the A17 which bypasses Long Sutton (this major road runs parallel to the old main road through Long Sutton) it is best to enter Long Sutton at the large Wisbech Road roundabout - the junction with the A1101 and Wisbech Road into Long Sutton.
This roundabout is easy to identify as it features a large BP petrol station, a Travel Lodge and McDonalds restaurant, all accessible from this roundabout.
Take the exit towards Long Sutton with the BP petrol station on the left of the exit road. As you pass the petrol station you will see another old windmill tower (Brunswick Mill) on the left just before you travel up and over the old railway bridge.
On the other side of the bridge you will see a sign to 'Silverhill' directing you left along the main road into Long Sutton along 'London Road'. Take this turning. Approximately fifty yards on, you will see the Old Ship public house on your right; travel a short distance past this pub and look out for a narrow entrance to Roman Bank, also signposted to the Butterfly Park.
Sneath's Mill is located on the left approximately one mile along Roman Bank (an old raised bank built as an early sea defence which changes its name to Little London and Lutton Gowts as it unfolds in front of you).
Along this road, on the right hand side, you will pass another disused mill (Harrison's Mill) and as you move on through Little London you will pass the Butterfly Park (now closed) and Peele Community College on the right hand side.
Just beyond the Peele Community College is a junction on the left hand side. Ignore this turning and carry on along Roman Bank; you will see the Lutton village sign and within a few yards is the turning onto the field track to the mill compound. If you reach Monmouth Lane (on your right) or Silverhill (on your left) you have travelled too far! An information board is sited by the gate.
The Sneath's Mill site is closed to the public, but can be viewed from the roadside.
