  • I had the very good luck to have a guided tour by chance yesterday, which was a wonderful experience. The owner painstakingly took me through all the family history and made sure I understood the workings of the mill, which was grinding grain as he spoke. I walked around the balconies and he explained the workings of the sails which were actually canvas bound and need maintenance on them every 5 years. I then bought some scone baking flour in which I shall be using very soon. I was just sorry I arrived camera less. I will end by saying that the owner could not have done more for us, a piece of history, described in great detail for me. I cannot thank you enough for your kindness, Margriet Askew.
  • I love the flour from this mill. When I get the chance to bake this is the stuff I use :)
  • Local produce ie: flour, cream teas and Wind mill
