The mill will be open from 10.30 - 12.30 and 13.00 - 15.00 on Sunday 15th May. Join us for a day of milling and watch local history come alive as we start the waterwheels turning! Our volunteer millers will be on hand to show you how the 19th Century mill would have been used to grind grain for flour. If you feel inspired to get baking, the stone-ground wholemeal flour is available to buy. Admission is free and there's no need to book - just pop in!
