UK Travel: A Coronavirus Update

The City Mill

The National Trust, Bridge Street Winchester SO23 0EJ

Squatting over the river at the very bottom of the high street, the lovely little City Mill features a variety of exhibitions and displays charting the history of milling. It’s most interesting, however, to visit on a weekend afternoon (Sat & Sun 2pm–4pm) when well-oiled cogs crank into action to produce powder-soft wholemeal flour. It is one of very surviving examples of a working water powered corn mill and it remained in regular use until the early 20th century. It is now owned by the national trust and open seven days a week. Something different to do and watch out during school holidays for special children's activities and events.
