“Stone ground flour made the old way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012

It is fascinating to see this in action and the flour is really lovely to make home made bread, run by Dutch people who do understand windmills

“Unexpected History Lesson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2012

Everything! The fact that you could go up into the working part of the mill.
The information on how flour is milled and the history of windmills fascinating.
I have forgotten the gentleman's name in the shop downstairs and if I had been a local I would have put my name down to help out on a voluntary basis. Volunteers are needed.

“Interesting”

Surprising to find a windmill in Foxton but enjoyed it as from Dutch heritage. Very enthusiastic guide with a good sense of humour.
