Milling Demonstration July

Jul 14, 2019 16:00 - 17:00

See massive wooden wheels harness the power of the tide to produce flour the old way. You can see, hear and smell the process.


Woodbridge Tide Mill is a bit of an icon locally, known by Woodbridge residents to be an attraction that brings visitors to the Town. It’s Milling Demonstrations and wheel turning times are a great way for people to witness the process of flour production from an historical perspective. The Mill has done this in one form or another for hundreds of years and now you can see it for yourself.

The Mill produces flour which it sells to help contribute to maintaining this very old building and machinery. Given that this is a regular occurrence, Head Miller Dan and his team have made flour production a spectator sport so that visitors can come and see, hear, smell and taste it.

The Mill’s friendly wardens will guide you around a host of interactive activities, unique computer generated imagery and children’s activities to help you discover how the grain and ultimately the flour move around the Mill.
