Mill Tours

You will journey back through the centuries to when water power was king. You can discover how, from Roman designs, Victorian craftsmen fashioned the great gears still in use today, powered by the mighty cast iron waterwheel that has been turning since 1864.

You will follow the organic wheat grain from the Hopper, through the Millstones, down the Flour Spout to the Meal Floor where the newly-milled organic flour is poured into hand-stamped bags ready for you to buy and enjoy.

We must advise you that some areas of the mill are not accessible to physically impaired visitors or people with walking difficulties.

Children can enjoy our excellent adventure playground which is built to the highest safety standards. This enclosed all-wood structure, set on a carpet of bark, has monkey bars, a rope net, crawling board, crow's nest platform, bench swing and slide. And just for the under-5's we have a large wood playhouse.
