Grade II* listed, Tocketts Mill is one of the most complete working water driven corn mills in England and has been recognised by English Heritage as one of the finest examples of its kind.This stunning building is an attraction in its own right and is open to explore during the summer months (please see opening times)
The Manor of Tocketts is recorded in the Domesday Book from 1086 named as Tosceton. The mill, fields, woodland and the valley of Tocketts were originally purchased by the first Earl of Zetland and throughout the coming centuries various Millers had tenancies for the dwelling house, corn mill and land.
The mill had high-grade stones that meant it was able to process wheat, rye, beans, peas and oats. In addition, the ground floor of the mill was used as a buttery. Milling declined after WW2 and the water wheel was decommissioned from commercial work in 1960.
The mill’s four floors have been fully restored, featuring some of the original machinery and are open to visitors on some Sundays from Easter to September (please check for details). The mill still produces flour from locally grown wheat and this is available to purchase when you visit. The former stables have also been renovated into the inn and restaurant. Come along and enjoy a fascinating and informative tour around the mill, but please note the mill has some steep stairs.
