Christchurch Quay is a more enclosed, grassed area with adjacent car parking. Place Mill, dating from 1100AD is open to the public from Easter to September and is now an Art Gallery with Resident Artist Cherie Wheatcroft. The mill, which straddles the millstream at the Quay is a Grade II listed building and important heritage site,. Café/ restaurants can be found at the Boat House and Old Mill Tea Rooms. During the summer months the Victorian bandstand holds concerts of brass, orchestral and light music. Boats are available for hire and there is also a ferry service to the opposite bank of the river at Wick. Novelty golf and a wishing well are also found on the Quay.
A pleasant riverside promenade runs the length of the site from the Quay to Wick Ferry and the slipway for public use.
