Bread is one of the oldest foods known to man, and you can experience this comfort food’s history at a traditional mill soaking up the sights, sounds and smells as wheels and stones turn, grinding the grain as they have done for over 800 years.

The first mill was recorded on this site 1170 when tidal power from the River Deben was used to grind corn in the mill and run by three Augustinian Canons, whose abbey dominated the town at the time

Nowadays when tides permit, you can see the five-metre English oak waterwheel turn the machinery, producing grain which will eventually be milled to produce flour.
