Such an interesting place. Run by fantastic volunteers. So knowledgeable. The demonstration was great and the opportunity to buy a bag of flour made at the mill makes it very special.

We really enjoyed the guided tour of this mill. John the volunteer Miller had a real in-depth knowledge of the history and the workings of the mill and made it so interesting. Would definitely recommend as it’s well worth it.

This little working mill is a must see hidden gem of Lyme Regis. The history is interesting and the food in the local restaurant is yummy! There's little shops and a brewery too for souvenirs.

The Town Mill is open 11am - 4pm every day. The only proviso is that it's run by volunteers, so there may be the occasional shift that is not covered.
