Visit the Mill

Houghton Mill in Summer

Houghton Mill dates back to 974 and is the oldest working water mill on the River Great Ouse.

The present building, which towers five stories high and dates from the mid 18th century with 19th and 20th century additions, actually has origins which date back to 974, when it was linked with the Benedictine Abbey at Ramsey.

The mill runs each sunday and bank holiday between March and October between 1.00pm - 4.00pm.

You can also enjoy an exhibition of late 19th and early 20th century paintings showing the Mill, St Ives and the surrounding area as it was over 100 years ago.

See the artiticles below to find out more about the art exhibition and two important past owners of the Mill - Potto Brown and his business partner Joseph Goodman.
