The bakery adjoining the mill still has its original, coal-fired oven for you to see. The bakery worked up until the 1950s, 30 years after the mill had stopped and many people used to walk to the mill to collect their bread.
We still bake in the original bakery and sell a wide range of bread and cakes.
Our Baking Shop, in the base of the Windmill, is full of bakeware, books, baking accessories and ideas.
We also sell the flour that we use for our baking, and other speciality flours.
Kids Baking
Our bread baking experience is on daily from 10am to 4pm, starting from the dough stage, visitors can enjoy shaping and creating anything they like which we will then prove and bake off for you to take home. No need to book, just turn up and purchase your voucher in the tearooms or go straight to the bakery and pay for your dough there. The cost is 2.50 a head.
During term time, visitors can also make bread from scratch, this takes about 2 hours, so runs from 10am to 3pm. It costs 5 per person and includes a free cup of tea or coffee to have while your bread proves. Again, no need to book, just turn up during the term time. When it is school holidays, both baking areas are needed for the dough stage baking experience.
