This former flour mill dating back to the 14th century was converted to a
sawmill in 1904. The building and water-wheel have been restored as a working
water-powered vintage sawmill. (Picture shows the owner Owen Rush with the
waterwheel). Many water-powered machines are now in operation.
If you would like a tour of the mill, or you are interested in becoming a
