Well worth the effort to get here and to see how the past way of milling was performed with a guided tour which is free is very informative

White Mill is on the old Kingston Lacy estate and is a well preserved mill on the Stour. Most of the machinery is intact and the mill guide was very informative. The adjacent bridge is over 800 years old and well worth seeing.

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
