This mill driven by a Little Giant turbine is worth visiting because it is pretty unusual in many respects. It is owned by a trust and you get the feeling there just isn't enough money to keep it up to scratch. There are no guides here and you show yourself round with aid of an illustrated leaflet. There are many... More

Wouldn't go out of my way, usual stuff really but pleasant enough. It is easy to look around the shops and tea room you don't have to pay unless you want to view the mill workings. Free parking bonus.

Popped into the mill to buy some of their excellent flour for my bread making machine. While we were there we decided on paying a visit to their restaurant. We all had a really great salad and drink, for a very reasonable price. Also the gift shops were equally brilliant! For a great day out you could not do any... More

We visited with my parents n a weekday lunchtime and the place was so busy we had to hang around outside for ten minutes waiting for someone to leave. As there were several people just nursing coffees we were not too pleased. We had driven a long way to visit so didn't just want to give up. The tables have... More

It is a really good place to visit. It has a really good atmosphere with the different trades from ages past. When I am passing I often stop to get my Bread making flower. Much better than the commercial made. Make really good bread!

We toured the old mill floors and found the size & range of machinery amazing. Such a shame to not see it in action! In the shop they must stock the biggest range of flours ever, and I am looking forward to trying out the "eight grain" flour I bought. Quite an eye opener.
