Local servicesEdit

Millhouse Green is home to the expected amenities of a village of this size. There was a small Post Office with shop in near the western edge of the village which closed in 2019. There is another small shop near the centre which sells freshly made food and a small selection of groceries. There is also the Millhouse Institute, a village hall that plays host to small events and has a crown green bowling square and tennis court at the rear. There is also a pub, the Blacksmiths and further out from the centre are Windmill Nurseries and Avid Farm Shop which both have cafes. Until recently, Millhouse also had a 4x4 dealership which had previously been a petrol station. This was cleared for construction and is now the 'New Estate'.

EducationEdit

The village is home to Millhouse Primary School a small, mixed primary school. It has from 80 - 100 students depending on the time of year, due to staggered intake.

New home developmentEdit

A development of around 200 homes was planned for the village, with the building work being split between Cala Homes and another developer. The site was selected as the old factory grounds for Hoyland Fox, an umbrella frame manufacturer and was renamed Springfields. The construction was placed on hiatus owing to the global financial crisis, but was finally completed in 2013.
