On the way to nearby Hardwick Hall we stopped off here. Not the biggest NT property but good to see the level of conservation and it's a working mill. We bought some flour and look forward to seeing what kind of bread it makes. Friendly volunteers on hand. Amazing to see how little water is required to power the water wheel.

My wife and I are National Trust members currently and visit here fairly regularly and always enjoy the experience. There is always plenty to do. The hall is nice and the gardens are beautiful in spring and summer. We always try to visit at Christmas as the decorations are usually very good and well worth visiting for. The grounds of the property are also good with some great walks to explore.

Stainsby Mill, stable yard and outer sheds are interesting hidden extras all part of the original 'working' estate at Hardwick Hall. Water is fed to the mill from the Miller's and Stainsby ponds and if you are lucky enough you can witness a working demonstration. The machinery here was rebuilt in1850 and it still produces flour today. After visiting the Hall itself, its a downhill stroll to the Mill along the meandering path/roadway.

Several keen volunteer guides greeted us and we had a detailed explanation of the working of this old water mill. Although they were not milling on the day we visited, we met the miller who had lots of information to share. Our 9 and 11 year olds enjoyed trying out the hand milling stone and you can buy flour here.
