The millers will be busy at Cogglesford Watermill, Sleaford, on Sunday 13 November as the huge water wheel rumbles into action for their regular milling day. The mill has been producing flour since the early 18th century and the mill has been beautifully preserved by North Kesteven District Council, giving a real insight into milling in days gone by.
Visitors can see the huge cogs and wheels use the power of the water wheel to turn the mill stones, producing wholemeal flour using certified organic wheat. Whilst you’re there you can learn about the history of the mill and its millers, try your hand at grinding grain and explore the mill. Why not take home a reminder of your day with a bag of Cogglesford Watermill’s very own flour, on sale in the shop. The milling will take place between 11am and 4pm.
