Attraction details
Owner description: Cogglesford Watermill, dating back to Saxon times, is thought to be the only Sherriff's watermill still in operation in England. The Mill lies in a picturesque setting on the River Slea in the historic market town of Sleaford, Lincolnshire, close to the town centre and all its amenities. Although the present Mill was mainly built in the early 18th Century, millers have produced flour on this site for over 1,000 years. This award winning, three storey building has a low breast shot water wheel and two sets of millstones. You can watch the Mill in operation on special event days, producing stone ground flour as it would have been 200 years ago. Video footage of the milling process can be seen when the Mill is not in operation. Discover the fascinating characters and events that shaped its history from its Anglo Saxon origins to the present day. Please note this is not the TripAdvisor Page for the restaurant which is located next to the mill.

Really good attraction, this is the only working water powered mill in Lincolnshire. It was really interesting to see the mill working. Have been once previously, it only works on occasional weekends. All the staff are very knowledgeable and can give to lots of information about the mill and history of the local area. We bought some flour produced in the mill.

a perfectly formed visit takes about an hour depending on how long you spend chatting to the very knowledgeable Miller and staff. The food in the restaurant/cafe is also very nice and the staff very helpful

Cogglesord Mill benefits from it's beautiful setting, and, having visited a few times now, it also lives up to the promise of excellent quality food and service. Whether having a Sunday roast, an evening menu or a lunch time snack they never fail to deliver. Absolutely worth every penny for such a high standard of food and all dietary requirements are catered for considerately. I love this place!

Had a lovely rest here after a good yomp along the river. The drink and cake make a lovely change however I thought they were a little on the expensive side. Lower the prices a little and this place could be heaving given the location.

Should not be put off though and if you haven't been before, pop in and have a nosey. Well worth a visit.
