Guided tours

  

Visitors are conducted through the mill in a guided tour lasting around 40 minutes. We are very hands-on, and you will be put to work when you enter the mill.

 

You could be weighing the grain, winnowing, ringing the bell, starting the wheel, shaking the shoe, trying to hand grind wheat and then testing the quality of the flour.

 

If you do really well, you can start on Monday at 5a.m. working as an apprentice at one shilling a week!
