Restoration of 18th Century Mill sees return of traditional bread making to Sacrewell Farm

With Sacrewell Farm officially reopening on Saturday 18th July, the restoration project has drawn interest both locally and further afield. The Mill House and the restoration of the Water Mill are of national importance as one of the top 8% listed buildings in the country. The Water Mill has potential roots back to the times of the Domesday book – it is believed to be one of the three Water Mills mentioned in the historical volume.

Our work to restore the Water Mill and turn it into a centre of Milling Excellence has meant that visitors can now learn to bake bread using traditional methods as well as taking part in the many educational activities planned for the new facility.

Nene Living covers the project in July’s issue. To learn more about the history behind this Heritage Lottery funded project, find out more about its careful restoration and the future plans for the Mill, please see the full article.
