Once watermills were a very common sight along Birmingham's rivers. It is estimated that in the 18th century there were over fifty the area. However, of all Birmingham's watermills, only Sarehole Mill and Newhall Mill (in Sutton Coldfield) survive as standing buildings with working water-driven machinery. Visitors to Sarehole Mill will see an attractive group of buildings, including a bakehouse, a metal workshop, a granary and the mill itself, all arranged around a cobbled courtyard. Behind the mill is the pool which receives its water from nearby Coldbath Brook.

The collections on show consist of agricultural and mill machinery. The mill stones, wheels and cogs form an integral part of the building. Also on display are agricultural implements of late Victorian times and carpenter's tools. A small display in the granary features J. R. R Tolkien, the author of the "Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings", who lived near Sarehole as a child. .
