Houghton Mill

Full of excellent hands-on activities for all the family and with most of its machinery still intact, this five-storey weatherboarded building dates from the 18th century and is the last working watermill on the Great Ouse.

Flour is for sale, ground in the traditional way by water-powered mill stones on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays.

The mill stands on an island on the edge of the attractive village of Houghton and is an ideal starting point for a walk through the water meadows. There are also great opportunities for cycling and horse-riding. A tea-room offers delicious food and drink to refresh you after your stroll.

Milling demonstrations are subject to river levels.
