This ancient watermill, set in the artisan quarter of Lyme Regis, was rescued from dereliction by local volunteers, through a ten-year restoration project. Today, the story of The Town Mill is recounted by volunteer millers and history guides, who mill stoneground wholemeal flour every day, and keep this special place open for everyone to enjoy.
Nestling around a cobbled courtyard, these restored mill buildings house a working flour watermill, as well as art galleries, artists’ studios, a café, a silversmith, a seamstress, a pottery, a bakery & deli, a design agency and a micro-brewery.
*Went into the Town Mill Bakery and had one hell of a breakfast. Fresh bread.......mmmmmm. There's a lady who goes in every morning at 4am to bake the breads for the day then prepare the dough for the breads for the following day so they can prove. AND......while looking for the bakery I discovered the mills potters....who pointed me towards the bakery. I spoke with them for a bit....and ended up buying a one of a kind coffee/tea cup. Will probably end up going back and photographing them as they create.....AND to visit the bakery again. Mmmmmmmmm
