Superb location on top of the Itchen. The water is crystal clear. They had just done some baking when we visited and there were loads of deilicious things to enjoy. Mill was working at the time. Otter watching is one highlight. Wholemeal flour on sale.

Not worth the time to see this "historical" and "beautiful" stream with a "mill" there somewhere. Better things to visit.

Well worth a visit. Great history to this place and it’s still a working mill. Interesting video to watch before exploring the mill. Lots of info aimed at children. Think the cobwebs in the ceiling are 17th century at least !
