I loved the tour of the Old Mill. The tour guide was quite passionate about the history and the workings of the Mill. I highly recommend the tour. It is educational and fascinating. It is something I will remember forever.

We visited this atttaction as part of a tour of the island and as such did not visit the inside. That being said it is an interesting building to visit with a facinating history
