We saw this advertised as a working flour mill and craft shops, there is actually only one shop - which is a normal gift shop really. Seeing the working mill was very interesting, I think they should have a more prominent area for the sale of their own flour, rather than it being tucked away at the far end of... More

Visited for the second time. Homity Pie is a must. Really excellent food. Could be a little friendlier though.

The mill is in a lovely setting, the mill is of historical interest, the craftsmen there were not all working and there was very little interaction with the public. The gallery and jewellery was very poor, very few pictures to view and not much jewellery and the quality was not very good. The craft shop was really just a gift... More

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

The mill is a rarity. A more industrialised variety with some beautiful machinery on display. Sadly it was not running when we visited but there was still a lot to see. The outer buildings are used by a range of craftsmen. Stonemason, forge, upholsterer, stained glass, etc. You can see them in action too. The cafe is a real treat... 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!

A great place to visit - very interesting mill tour and great craft shops particularly Greenhalgh Glass - the jewellery unusual and the glass wall plaques wonderful
