Baking and recipe cards at Winchester City Mill

Baking at Winchester City Mill

Visit the Mill during one of our regular baking demonstrations and discover how our team of volunteers combine our freshly milled stoneground flour with seasonal ingredients.

Our Flour

At Winchester City Mill we regularly hold milling demonstrations where you can witness how the natural power of the River Itchen is harnessed to create our flour. We produce traditional stoneground wholemeal flour using our machinery.  Our wheat is English and is sourced from the South Downs and Chichester Plains. The whole of the wheat is milled, including the wheat germ and the bran producing a flour rich in nutrients and with a distinct flavour. The flour is produced using natural energy, is low in food miles and helps to support British farming.

Our Baking Demonstrations


For a decade, Winchester City Mill has held baking demonstrations for visitors. We have a wonderful team of baking volunteers who have developed a unique repertoire of recipes over the years. They are always keen to demonstrate their baking skills as well as pass on hints and tips. Many of our demonstrations are themed and seasonal products are used throughout the year.


Our Recipe Cards


As our baking demonstrations have grown in popularity, our team of volunteer bakers have developed a range of recipe cards, using our stoneground wholemeal flour, for you try at home.
