What a brilliant day spent with Steve learning to make different doughs for bread, pizza and rock cakes . Great fun but learnt a lot. Steve was a very good teacher but made it fun. Would thoroughly recommend this experience

Very interesting visit to a working mill. You can see flour being milled and then buy the result in the form of very nice bread in different forms. There is a nice Tea Shop there and lovely walks from the Ford.

I am afraid we do not have the facilities to hold a wedding reception at the mill. Sorry!
