The Mill, a Grade II* listed building, was built in 1869 and generated enough power to turn four sets of mill stones. Find out how a windmill works, how corn is ground and flour made using the power of wind or the Hornsby 14 hp gas-oil engine. See what the miller's cottage would have looked like at the turn of the 19th century.
To enable the workings of the Mill to be fully explained, visitors are taken on a guided tour lasting about 45 minutes. Wheelchair users have access to the ground floor area where there are many items of interest.
Look around the mill's 19th century barn which houses unique examples of Norman cycles and motorcycles which were made in Ashford.The Barn also houses a Gift Shop and Mrs.Cobb's Kitchen where you can enjoy home-made cakes, hot or cold drinks, light refreshments, ice cream, etc.
