Mapledurham House & Watermill Summary


Mapledurham House & Watermill Description

Mapledurham House

Tucked away in a corner of south Oxfordshire is Mapledurham House and watermill. The Elizabethan mansion is full of history of the Blount family, original owners for over 500 years whilst the watermill is the last working on the river Thames. Added in 2011 is an Archimedes screw turbine which enables the estate to produce green electricity to not only help the planet but also to ensure the future of the beautiful watermill.

Mapledurham proudly holds the following awards:
Silver in the Beautiful South Awards - Best Small Attraction 2012
Gold in the Beautiful South Awards - Outstanding Customer Services 2011 (Lola Andrews)
Finalists in the Oxfordshire Business Awards 2013
Silver in the Beautiful South Awards - Sustainable Tourism 2013
Filming is popular at Mapledurham – the film “The Eagle has Landed” was filmed here in 1976, whilst more recently episodes of Midsomer Murders and Miss Marple have been produced here.

Mapledurham can be visited between Easter and the end of September on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank holidays and on Sunday afternoons in October. Mid week parties are welcomed by appointment. Guests can arrive by boat from nearby Caversham. Our tea rooms sell a variety of cakes and cream teas, whilst the shop stocks the flour produced in the watermill.

Various events are held at Mapledurham, including an annual craft fair, falconry days, battle re-enactments and open air theatre. New for 2013 is a planned event called Mapledurham at War which promises to be a superb re-enactment of World War 2.

Full details of our events can be found at our Website.
