  • The Mill complex takes you far back in time and demonstrates how for hundreds of years this mill has ground flour. A wonderful experience that can be enjoyed by young and old.  more »

  • Ancient town-centre watermill brilliantly restored to working order by local enthusiasts. Visits conducted by a qualified miller who explains everything as well as setting the mill going – milling grains to make flour packaged for sale in the attached bakery and deli. Mill also contains its own hydro-electric generator to provide all its own electrical power. Adjacent, there's the Courtyard café, tea-room and art gallery. Nearby, there's an outlet for Lyme Regis Brewery as well as another gallery. Well worth a look.
  • Fascinating, well worth a visit. A restored working mill run entirely by volunteers. Some guided tours are available over the mill complex at certain times, very informative with a very long history and you can purchase different varieties of flour milled on the site.
  • Great tour, really interesting and great to see the water wheel working. Terrific for kids.
  • Very welcoming great atmosphere. Coffee great also cake's. Recommend to all.
  • Lovely area in Lyme. As well as the working watermill, which you can learn how it was used in the past and how is generates energy now, there are many artisans at work in units you can watch and buy their wares. They include Potters, a silversmith & a stonemason. There is also a café, restaurant, microbrewery and two art galleries. Well worth a visit.
