Mill your own flour at Winchester City Mill

Winchester, Hampshire

Be thrilled by the sights and sounds of a rare surviving urban working corn mill, powered by the fast-flowing River Itchen underneath.

Rebuilt in 1743 on the site of a medieval mill, Winchester City Mill remained in use until the early 20th century. The National Trust undertook an ambitious restoration project and the mill resumed grinding flour in 2004.

Discover a millennium of milling history and have a go yourself at milling flour using hand querns. With hands-on activities for families and audio-visual displays about milling and the rich wildlife in the area – including CCTV footage of Winchester’s resident otters – the City Mill is a lively and informative place for all ages to enjoy.

The Mill is just a short walk from the Winnall Moors Nature Reserve – a quiet space for wildlife enthusiasts or those with a love of the outdoors.
