Winchester City Mill

Bridge Street, Winchester

SO23 0HN

A rare surviving example of an urban working corn mill.

Winchester City Mill has stood at the heart of the historic city of Winchester, the capital of King Alfred’s Wessex, since at least Saxon times. With a history of over 1000 years, Winchester City Mill is probably the oldest working watermill in the UK.

A rare surviving example of an urban working corn mill, the City Mill was rebuilt in 1744. Having entered the care of the National Trust in the late 1920’s, the City Mill was restored back to full working order in 2004.

With hands-on activities and audio-visual displays about milling and the rich wildlife in the area, as well as regular flour milling and baking demonstrations, the City Mill is a lively and informative place for all ages.

The City Mill is also the official gateway to the South Downs National Park, providing a wide selection of information for those wishing to explore local walks and the attractions found within the South Downs, including the many historic National Trust properties.

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

Exploring : Discover a millennium of milling history. Have a go at milling flour using hand querns. Watch CCTV footage of Winchester's resident otters.

Flour milling demonstrations every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year and every Wednesday (April-Oct).

Regular programme of baking demonstrations.
