  • Date: //
  • Time: 2:00pm - 6:00pm
  • Location: Private Venue in Billesley
  • Telephone: 01212493164







The Family Moot Coffee/Walk and Talk Moot occurs biweekly on a Saturday from 2pm onwards in the Mill Cafe (or at Tony and Allis's house in Winter). The coffee and cakes are inexpensive and the setting is pleasing, set away from the road and nestled in parklands.

Depending on the weather, the mobility of attendees and moot mood, there is the option of going for a walk around the surrounding parklands, including Joys Wood and Moseley Bog.

LATEST UPDATE:

our next 'mill' moot and all those after until the mill re-opens in the spring will start at my house for beverages and a bite to eat (which will be free but all donations towards will be greatly appreciated) and move on from there to moseley bog or other local areas of interest dependant on what attendees decide on the day. (If we go to the bog, non drivers can be taken in our car)


If you would Like to come, please PM Allis, Tony (Yspaddaden) or Kiel by clicking their names then 'personal messages'.

Kiel can be reached by mobile: 07878988779 or by email: admin@pagancentral.org

In the winter months, the mill is closed, an alternative venue is still being discussed.

About the Mill:
The 200-year-old mill at Sarehole is one of only two surviving watermills in Birmingham. The cobbled courtyard and mill pool are a tranquil haven from 21st century life outside, while the buildings and their impressive machinery give a unique insight into the lives of the millers who once inhabited this rural retreat. More than seventy watermills once occupied the riverbanks around Birmingham and there has been one at Sarehole for at least 460 years.  Sarehole was first built as a corn-grinding mill but has also been used for rolling sheet metal, grinding blades and wire rolling.

The Mill was once rented to Matthew Boulton before he moved to Handsworth to build his famous Soho Manufactory. The local landscape also provided inspiration for the stories of JRR Tolkien who spent his childhood here.

Hey all, I was milling over a few ideas for the next moot and my attention turned to the horde of felled wood in my back garden from a sycamore tree. Nobody really does talks or workshops on the moot scene anymore, how about a staff/wand making workshop for the next moot?

I have plenty of tools to bring, do you think we can get away with not being insured i.e. "there's a knife over there, feel free to pick it up and do what you like with it" etc.

Obviously kids can't touch knives, but maybe sandpaper/paints etc? let me know what you think. I think the area under the oak tree in the bog is a pretty inspiring creative space myself. There's also lots of vines and things (as illustrated yesterday) for people to pick up interesting additions for their crafts.

yeah sure why not, sounds like a good idea to me. if knives are kept with adults and no just put down children won't have an accident and Kya is desperate for her own staff Smiley
We'll bring a first aid kit just in case of accidents (but we won't be having any)
kids should be fine with a bit of sand paper, they can also be sent on the search of feathers and such.

Mine's been on various places all over the web, I haven't had any nasty calls, only moot enquiries.

I'm not worried about my address being on here because of the good old telephone directory where my name was attached to my address for years and distributed to the entire population of Birmingham.
There are a lot of wierdo's out there but the worst thing I've had is someone advertised a non existent employment opportunity using my name and address in a local paper and I got cv's in the post, and that was a policeman's wife!
