The Jordans bought Holme Mills, on the
river Ivel, in 1893 to mill flour. The building was gutted by
fire in 1894 and rebuilt, replacing the millstones with a roller system
that turned the Mill into one of the most advanced of its time.
Now the turbine-powered roller mill can be seen in operation. Guided and self
guided tours available.
