Great news this week as Sherry Forbes from the Manor House Stables in Martin will be joining in with the festive activities at Cogglesford Watermill in Sleaford.
Join Cogglesford Watermill on Sunday 11 December for their last milling day of the year and see this historic building come to life and watch the huge water wheel rumble into action turning the millstones to grind grain. 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.
As it is the last milling day of the year, it will be beautifully decorated for Christmas and visitors can enjoy a free mince pie and mulled wine. Sherry Forbes from the Manor House Stables in Martin will also be in attendance with plum bread demonstrations creating a delicious aroma getting us all in to the Christmas spirit!
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.
