Where: Cogglesford Watermill, East Road, Sleaford, Lincolnshire NG34 7EQ
What is it?
Cogglesford Watermill, situated on the River Slea in Lincolnshire, dates back to Saxon times and is thought to be the only sheriff’s watermill still in operation in England.
The mill was mainly built in the early 18th Century although millers have produced flour on the site for more than 1,000 years.
On the second Sunday of the month visitors are able to watch Cogglesford Watermill in operation, producing organic wholemeal flour as it would have done 200 years ago. The next milling day will be on 10th November. The wholemeal ground flour is sold in the mill shop so you can take some of the produce home with you afterwards.
Due to the nature of the building, disabled access is to the ground floor of the mill only. Videos of the milling process can also be seen on the ground floor throughout the year.
