There are currently more than 100 working mills capable of producing natural, stoneground flour and many of these will be open to the public during National Mills Weekend. In addition, over the weekend, a further 300 mills throughout the country will be welcoming visitors.

Some working mills are more than 300 years old yet still efficiently doing the job in the 21st century that they were built and designed for.
