This complete Victorian 'automatic' water turbine-powered roller flour mill has a unique collection of fascinating early milling machinery on four huge floors. The mill illustrates the transition from the old, inefficient millstones to the precision roller process of today. It is well interpreted and has 'hands-on' models and displays to explore which demonstrate many aspects of early science and technology. There is a newly opened section of the provender Mill to see. Independent working Craftspeople around the Stable Yard. The Mill Shop offers a great range of quality flours and free recipes to delight the discerning housewife. Café, free car park.
