Welcome

The fields, woods and green spaces of the Almond Valley site extend for nearly a mile either side of the river Almond. At its heart lies the old buildings of Livingston Mill and the nearby Mill Farm which is home to all manner of friendly animals who are always happy to meet you.

There's a big variety of unique and imaginative play spaces set among the meadows and woodland, with loads to see and do, no matter the weather. We’re particularly proud of our new Paraffin Works play area set beneath a giant umbrella. There's indoor soft play beside our wonderful tearoom, and the shale oil museum with fascinating interactive displays. It’s a brilliant family day out; come along and find out for yourself.
