The Mill and its river and millpond are home to a thriving and diverse ecosystem, including wild brown trout, kingfishers, damselflies and otters. Now that the millwheel is restored and the sluice gates can close to create the beautiful millpond, we are working on generating our own electricity from the millwheel.
Our surroundings serve as a daily reminder that we inherit the skills of those who came before us. For each year we have milled at Shipton, they milled for a hundred. In short, our flours today are the products of their past.
