Impressive working 18th-century watermill
Follow this amazing survival story of a mill that was almost demolished, then saved by the local villagers and restored to working order to carry on the tradition of milling on this site for over 1,000 years.
Set in an idyllic village location on an island on the Great Ouse River, Houghton Mill has inspired artists and photographers for generations. Come and experience the sound and atmosphere of a traditional working mill, have a go at making flour or lose yourself in the tranquillity of the riverside setting.
What to look forward to...
New for 2014
Come and see our new millstones and why not grab a bag of flour while you're here?
Even more milling
Our new millstones mean that we can grind flour more often. We still mill every Sunday afternoon, plus we'll have extra milling days throughout the year too. Keep an eye on Twitter for details.
