Keeping the wheel turning

Our expert millers will be on the second floor at five past the hour, every hour,  from 11:05am - 3:05pm, talking about the mills history, how we've kept the mill running,  and what the future holds for Lode Mill. After each talk you can see a demonstration of the mill in full operation.
