National Trust Property. Corn mill with original wooden machinery in a peaceful riverside setting. Open afternoons on Saturdays and Sundays only from Easter to October. Very informative guided visits and a lovely river location near the oldest bridge in Dorset.

Wow! This is an amazing little gem of a place! A substantial amount of pre-industrial revolution machinery still remains in situ, and the guides are incredibly knowledgeable. Well worth a visit.

We popped in here after spending the day Kingston Lacey, just 10 minutes away. Due to it being such a small attraction I think it often gets overlooked but that makes it a great place to visit if you want a quiet, personal tour. We...More

Lovely old mill not surprisingly next to a river! Interesting tour inside and small grounds are pleasant adjacent to the river. Close to NT Kingston Lacy estate and Barford Farm icecream, for some nice home made icecream. You can walk along the river either side...More

Very interesting restored 18c mill with working wooden machinery and informative cheerful guides. Fascinating to discover the shared resource of a mill grinding for all the farms around. Have a picnic in the garden on the banks of the river Stour and let time slip...More

We thought it was worth waiting for the tour of the mill to get a true flavour of the history and workings of the mill. The guide was very informative and entertaining and kept your interest.

This is a NT property, and we had a very enthusistic guide who told us the nitty gritty of how the place worked. Set on the river next to a very old bridge which leads to Sturminster Marshall, where on weekends you can get tea...More
