Overview
More
An eighteenth century working watermill museum and bakery. The mill produces organic stoneground flour and artisan loaves are handmade in the bakery. The majority of our organic grain is grown on a neighbouring farm giving our flour and bread the lowest "food-miles". There are four floors of the mill to explore and the mill's Crossley HD11 oil engine normally runs on Sunday afternoons.

Amazing Mill and in a wonderful location and don't forget the brook around the back. A Haven for wildlife, and the mill has open days and the bakery I believe is open on Saturdays as well for amazing bread!! Fantastic location so relaxing and tranquil.

No, I am afraid there is no cafe. The bakery sells bread and some cakes on a Saturday morning.
