History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The mill was once owned by writer Hillaire Belloc, who owned the house at King's Land. A descendant of Belloc owns the site. The mill operated regularly until 1922 and has been restored several times since then.
For several years the mill was operated by a charitable trust, and visitors could see the inner workings of the mill machinery and watch flour being ground. However, the visitor centre at the mill is now closed to visitors and the interior cannot be viewed.
The mill exterior, however, can still be viewed from the public footpath that runs directly beside the building, so we've left this article online.
