Thanks Chris Hamriding Estate Agents for producing this video which tells the story of the Old Sawmill beautifully, well worth a watch!

The work we do in the community…

The Old Saw Mill Project grew out of Congleton Sustainability Group with the aim of providing a unique space in the heart of Congleton’s community. We have grown into a much-loved community space which provides a meeting place for various community groups, a volunteer coordination point, a connected community place and it’s home to the now famous Congleton Apple Juice made from donated apples!

A gem of a place, community focused and run by many volunteers too. Delicious home made food and the afternoon teas are wonderful. Lovely homemade produce for sale here too at very reasonable prices like jam, apple juice and pickles and cake to name a few. Visited with the local East Cheshire Eye Society group who had a wonderful time and we we so very well looked after. Thank you.
