This place has something for everyone and would be sad to miss if you are in the area on an open day. There were three parts to our visit--the house, the fountain and the mill.
The House-- a detailed audio guide narrated by the current resident tells the story of the many generations of his family who have lived here. There are interesting tidbits about certain pieces of furniture. It is very clear that the house is still being used to this day.
The Fountain will be of interested to engineers and children. Going off a couple of times during the afternoon, the water jet sprays high into the air.
The Mill, which apparently was refurbished not long ago, is a working flour mill, and visitors can learn about every step of the milling process, seeing the wheat grain being fed into the grinding stones and the sieving process where flour of different grades is collected. All of the workings are powered by the large water wheel. You can even purchase sacks of freshly milled flour.
