A self guided tour of the old mill works, is an interesting way to linger after a delicious meal at the adjacent cafe. Information signs explain both the history of the operation as well as the many sections and processes used in milling grains.

The place got potential but need some upgrade of the room so you can see and understand better whats happening. The mill is impressive but need more care.

Nice self guided tour that gives overview of the wheel and it's users over time. It's a short visit and located near the cafe.
