The mill will re-open on Saturday 22nd March and will include a display about the recent flooding on the River Itchen.

A rare surviving example of an urban working corn mill, Winchester city mill is powered by the fast-flowing River Itchen, which can be seen passing underneath, thrilling our visitors. Rebuilt in 1743 on the site of a medieval mill, it remained in use until the early 20th century. The National Trust undertook an ambitious restoration project and the mill resumed grinding flour in March 2004.

With hands-on activities for families and audio-visual displays about milling and the rich wildlife in the area, the City Mill is a lively and informative place for all ages to enjoy.

Note: Nearest toilet 220 yards from the mill (not National Trust).

Exploring : Discover a millennium of milling history. Enjoy our weekend milling demonstrations. Have a go at milling flour using hand querns. Watch CCTV footage of Winchester's resident otters. Escape to the nearby Winnal Moors Nature Reserve. Programme of baking demonstrations. From April - September flour milling demonstrations every Saturday and Sunday 11am - 4pm and every Wednesday 2pm - 4pm.

Eating and shopping: Browse in our gift shop for gifts and books. Buy local produce, such as award winning cheeses, wine and beer, as well as a bag of our freshly milled wholemeal flour.
