Here is an insight into life in the 19th century - at least for the landed gentry who built it to produce white flour for cakes and pastries to put on the table when in residence at Hardwick Hall - at least 6 days a year! The water wheel is turning all the time that the mill is open to the public. Flour is produced fairly regularly and is on sale there. The staff are very helpful and give a good account of how things work. Although a small place it really is worth a visit. It is in the grounds of Hardwick Hall (and charges seperately) but it may be better to park in the car park at the mill as it is quite a step from the Hall carpark although is is walkable and reasonably flat. Toilets and food available at Hardwick Hall.
