|Buckinghamshire's only working Watermill with original machinery|
A short video about Ford End Watermill
This little mill, recorded in 1616 but certainly very much older, was in use until 1963.
Restored by volunteers, and now maintained and run by Ford End Watermill Society, it is the only remaining working watermill in Buckinghamshire with original machinery.
It retains all the atmosphere of a small farm mill of the late 1800's.
An unusual feature is the sheepwash in the tailrace below the mill. Washing made the fleece easier to shear and increased its value.
Stoneground wholemeal flour is on sale during milling demonstrations.
Schools and other parties are very welcome, details at the bottom of this page.
