There is no admission to the mill and when the mill is open we offer free guided tours when we have staff available or self-guide using our self-guide tour brochure. Want to tour right now? take the virtual tour below. Are you in the region? in addition to the mill you can take a walking tour of Delta, take a cycling or driving tour of the area, or even tour Upper or Lower Beverley lakes in your boat. You'll find tour guides for all of those on this page.
You can take a short (4 minute) virtual photo tour of the mill by clicking on the start button (arrow button in the middle of the video) on the YouTube video. You can also see a higher resolution version of this photo tour on the Photo Tour Page and also see other photos and videos in our Photo and Video gallery.
Of course nothing beats actually visiting the mill - it's a very interesting place.

Tours of the Mill
When the mill is open (see the events page for dates) - you are welcome to tour the mill on your own or take advantage of a free guided tour provided by one of our summer students or volunteers. Our tour volunteers and staff are very knowledgable and there is extensive interpretive signage throughout the mill. It's quite the experience.

Walking Tour of Delta
Our local Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee has prepared a wonderful walking tour of Delta - showcasing many of the lovely heritage buildings in the village. View the Heritage Tour of Delta page.
Our local Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee has created several cycling tours (which can also be used as driving tours), all starting from the Old Stone Mill. Distances range from 23 to 97 kilometers. If cycling, you can park your vehicle anywhere in Delta, or park it at Lower Beverley Lake Park. You can also stay (camp) at the park or stay at the Denault Inn (see links in self-guide tour section).
The tours, as 2-page PDFs (so that they can be printed double sided on one piece of paper), can be found on the Township of Rideau Lakes website at: www.rideaulakes.ca/experience/things-to-do/trails-tours/cycling
Delta offers a starting point some great paddling experiences. Use the public launch (44° 36.575'N 76° 07.425W) located just around the corner from the mill to access Lower Beverley Lake. This lake is an interesting place to explore, and the more venturesome can paddled to either Lyndhurst and/or Morton.
You can also paddle Upper Beverley Lake, the former mill pond of the Old Stone Mill (originally two smaller lakes, now one large lake). A public launch in available at the end of UB5 Road (44° 36.780'N 76° 06.985'W).
We've prepared a full guide to paddling the lakes - see: Paddling the Beverley Lakes
