Flour milling demonstrations in the watermill
Meet the millers and see the watermill in action with live demonstrations from the Acorn Bank Watermill Trust every weekend.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
The watermill is up and running on Saturdays and Sundays (and Bank Holiday Mondays) until 30 October. Watch as the millers grind wheat into wholemeal flour, finding out more about the process as it happens. Bags of the flour are also for sale should you wish to take some home with you.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
