At Houghton Mill

Houghton Mill is a water-powered mill still in use. Now, it grinds a few hundred kg of flour per week for local speciality bakeries. In its hey-day in the mid 1800s, the mill had 10 millstones in operation and produced 40 tons of flour per day.

They were doing a grinding day when I visited.
