"Bourne Visitor Centre is a great museum set in an old water mill."
Bourne Visitor Centre is a small and friendly museum, full of fascinating facts and artefacts. It also pays tribute to two of Bourne’s most famous sons: Raymond Mays, one of the founding fathers of modern British motorsport, and Charles Frederick Worth, founder of the famous Paris fashion house The House of Worth .
Run by a group of knowledgeable and dedicated volunteers, it is located in Baldock’s Mill, the town’s only surviving water mill. Mentioned in The Doomsday Book, there has been a mill on this site ever since.
In 1977, Baldock’s Mill was renovated after falling into a state of disrepair, and turned into the Bourne Heritage Centre.
