Maybe we were unlucky but not much open when we went. Little menu choices for special diets and none of the shops seemed to be open

Well worth a visit to wonder round, see the Mill, we also saw a potter on his wheel. Lunch was tasty, quick and reasonably priced. You can get a beer or cider from the local brewery - the art gallery is excellent too.

Visited the mill today & was given a tour by miller Ian whose passion for the project shone through his every word. Who knew there was so much to milling flour. A great job being done by all the volunteers on this challenge.

The mill is a bit hidden so you need to find it and we were glad we did. We got a free tour of the mill itself and saw how flour is made. There are a few other shops with art, homemade beer and cider...More

The Town Mill is open 11am - 4pm every day. The only proviso is that it's run by volunteers, so there may be the occasional shift that is not covered.
