See the old mill dating from 1525 and taste fresh scones and cakes at Hele Corn Mill & Tea Room.

Take a tour given by a member of the family that owns the business; children and adults alike will enjoy finding out about the history of the mill, the process of making flour over the centuries, and some of the misfortunes that have befallen the millers.
