The Winchester City Mill is an urban working watermill powered by the fast-flowing River Itchen at the bottom of High Street.
Rebuilt in 1744 on an earlier medieval site, it remained in use until the early 20th century. Following major restoration undertook by The National Trust, the mill resumed grinding flour again in early 2004. The City Mill is today a National Trust property.
The City Mill is a lively and informative place for all ages to enjoy. You can learn about the technology and history of milling with hands-on activities, working models, displays and video presentations. Flour making demonstrations take place on Saturdays and Sundays. Frequent baking/tasting days as also organised throughout the year.
All areas are accessible to disabled visitors, and guide dogs are also permitted.
