We are lucky enough to have a number of fantastic local and national artists currently exhibiting their pieces in our beautiful grounds.As our exhibits have grown over the past year we have decided to create Art Walk 2014 a mini tour around our grounds which details the pieces we are exhibiting and the artists who have kindly contributed them. It’s great fun for the children too!
We have recently opened two new garden areas to the public which include a traditional knot garden, as well as, our ‘secret garden’ with our newly renovated Victorian swimming pool (as a pond) complete with a stunning tree fountain made by family friend Julian Bailey
Any new artists wishing to exhibit at The Mill please contact Liz she would be delighted to hear from you

Lymington based and on the edge of the New Forest (an endless source of inspiration and pubs) I like painting foliage and all the messy bits of nature. The bits people either walk past or over without noticing.http://www.coastal-gallery.co.uk/page2.htm http://www.coastal-gallery.co.uk/page2.htm
