Sandford Mill Museum

Sandford MillThe Sandford Mill Museum is not actually in Great Baddow, but as it is an interesting museum within walking distance of Great Baddow, just beyond the Baddow Meads area (which lies to the west), I have decided to allow it on. Although, maybe the River Chelmer was the old northern boundary of Baddow? (I will check the old maps later).

Sandford Mill is Chelmsford’s former waterworks. Today it stores various artifacts from its industrial past and also runs some science education workshops. It is mostly open to school only, but they do run a few public open days each year. The next public open day is Sunday, 3 August 2014 – 2:00pm to 5:00pm. It is free.

From Great Baddow it is best accessed on foot (or bike) from Sandford Mill Lane, which is off the Maldon Road (A414) almost opposite the top of Molrams Lane. There is no access for cars from the Great Baddow side. For those driving access is from the top end of Sandford Mill Road which comes off Chelmer Village Way.
