A Glimpse of the Past
It probably was not a popular place during its heydays; however, the Old Mill is now a classic tourist attraction. Thanks to its old worldly charm, the scenic sights around and the various activities that can make up a leisurely day here.
The Old Mill is located alongside the River Eye where visitors can enjoy a stroll or enter the Museum that chronicles the history and the working of the mill as it contributed to bread making in the area. The milling machine, which is one of the highlights at the museum, is still there for visitors to see.
