Just downstream of the old corn mill, The Shallows is actually the outflow from the mill race passing under the mill, before it rejoins the main channel of the Derwent. The wall you see is a flood wall, built in 1996. In times of high flow the flood gates are closed to keep the water in the riverside area and prevent it spilling onto the main A166 road and properties in The Square.

“Blah, blah, my dear, blah, the millrace, Rebecca.”
As if all that is going on tomorrow for Small Business Saturday isn't enough, tomorrow is also the kick off of Selfie with the Elfie in Mill Race Village. Every Saturday from 1:00PM-2:00PM (starting tomorrow 11/24) from now until Christmas, Breaking Grounds Coffee & Cafe's very own Jenny Lee will be dressed up as an elf and hiding out in various shops throughout Mill Race Village. We want people of all ages (especially adults with children) to play along and try to find where she is hiding. If you find her, take a selfie with Jenny the Elf and text or email it to us! Not only will your selfie be shared on the Breaking Grounds and Mill Race Village social media (Facebook and IG), you will be part of a lottery where a random lucky person will win a Mill Race Village gift card! Entries must be sent by 3:00PM each Saturday to be eligible. #millrace#millracevillage#millracevillageshops#millracevillagenj#millraceshops#breakinggroundscoffee#selfiewiththeelfie#winagiftcard#findthatelf
