Cogglesford Watermill is thought to be the only Sherriff’s watermill still in operation in England and is a rare survivor from a river that once boasted some 18 watermills at the time of the Doomsday Book. It belongs to a group of mills considered to be most valuable from Lincolnshire, and amongst the most important in the country.
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 mill in operation during special milling days which take place on the second Sunday of the month. The millers will be busy on Sunday 9 April as the huge water wheel rumbles into action turning the millstones to grind the grain producing their own wholemeal and unbleached white flour.
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.
