What a little gem of a place to visit. The volunteers are so passionate and knowledgeable of the working and history. Young and old can enjoy this activity and learn from the past. Amazing and so glad it is kept and history passed on.

We visited this small working mill and were thoroughly entertained by two local volunteer guides who relived for us the history and workings of the place. Very small but full of the past and properly interesting
