Very fascinating with the old water turned machinery. A really intriguing industrial visitor centre just tucked a couple of minutes off the A6

Super friendly and knowledgable team running this working mill. Very reasonable priced refreshments and just-baked bread for take away are the icing on the cake, so to speak. Free parking for many cars too. Nothing not to love. Highly recommended.
